Homerville cleans up after storm

Folks in Homerville were cleaning up Wednesday from a storm that blew through Tuesday afternoon.

Some folks claim it looked like a tornado whipped through downtown.

Before crews used a tow truck to bring this metal garage back to it's upright position, it was like this. Tuesday's high winds moved it from Richard's Grocery and Seafood Market out onto the highway.

"Everything went flying in the air," said Sharon Calley.

Metal pieces from the awning at the store are gone. This sign and fence relocated.

"It came so fast your didn't know what to do," said Calley.

Highway signs are bent over and Sharon Calley even saw her suburban lift off the ground.

"My truck the back of it was picked up and this cooker it lifted it about a foot or two in the air and then it just took this and went on over," said Calley.

Not too far from her business, a railroad crossing was also hit by the storm.

The arm at this railroad crossing snapped in two and workers repaired it quickly.

The high winds from the afternoon thunderstorms definitely shook up the community.

We're told no one was hurt.
