Storms sweep through South Georgia

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Heavy rains and winds swept through South Georgia on Friday.

Those storms took down some trees and power lines in East Albany.

Water, Gas and Light crews were busy restoring power to folks along Brierwood St. on Friday night.

Residents in the area say they just got home when the storm hit.

"We didn't know that it actually hhappenedhere, we just saw that power was out and we called, and said it would be an hour or two and they came out and gave us a line," says Albany resident Marques Covin.

The storms also split a tree in half over on Johnson St.
