BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Storms knocked out power to hundreds people in Brooks County Sunday night.

Brooks County resident Eloise Still says she's just glad for the rain.

"I was glad to see it," Eloise Still. "I love the rain but you know that lightning and all scares me but that comes with it. We needed it. Everything is dry around here."
