Lowndes County - The National Weather service says it was not a tornado that caused damage in Lowndes County Tuesday.

They say it was just a storm with severe wind gusts that uprooted trees, downed power lines and damaged homes.

Clyattville was hit the hardest.

Folks there have picked up since yesterday and say the job will take another several days.  "We had a lot of trees on the roofs of buildings, we had trees leaning into other trees so we had to use cranes to get them out. It's just a big disaster," says Dwaine Cunningham of Cunningham Tree Service.

In fact, clean up crews say it's the biggest mess they've seen in Lowndes County since they were hit by a hurricane in 2004.
