ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Sunday, April 19, saw a number of severe weather reports for many Southwestern Georgia counties.

The first severe weather report came from Sumter County, four miles North-Northeast of Plains, where tree damage occurred. There were seven total reports of damage in Sumter County, with a barn blown in to the road, and grain silos knocked down.

Additional severe weather reports in the form of wind damage were recorded in Randolph county, (1), Terrell County, (2), Webster County, (1), Early county, (3), Lowndes County, (3), Coffee County, (3), Worth County, (2), and Baker County, (1).

In Sylvester, an ancient tree was blown over onto the resident's car, and further down Isabella Street, a century old house was damaged when a tree that probably as old, blew down.

The severe weather occurred during a four to five hour period, with damage recorded between 10:35 AM and 2:55 PM Sunday, across our Southwestern Georgia counties.

In many of the counties listed above, trees were blown down. Power lines were downed by the strong winds in Valdosta and agricultural structures were damaged in Coffee county.
