AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Sumter County is cleaning up in their southern portion from damage caused by storms this week.

Officials say a combination of heavy rains and straight-line winds have caused several trees to fall.        

Crews were out cleaning up Wednesday after storms moved through the area around 10:00.

"Power lines got involved as it moved east in the Leslie and deSoto area I think right at the DeSoto post office there was a huge oak that cane down and pulled wires down," said Bill Twomey, Sumter Co. Administrator.      

Crews were also preparing for more rain by pulling ditches and clearing drains.
