Storms rip through South Georgia...causing some damage.

An Albany couple was trapped after a tree came crashing down on their mobile home on Sylvester Road, just hours ago.

The tree also struck a power line and caused a power outage.

The couple, who were inside, were able to get out, but not without a fight.

“We thought the house got struck by lightning but when we got up there were holes in the roof, said Tracie Coston. “And the bathroom the kitchen the living room. We were trapped inside. We were able to open the storm door just a little and cut the branch and kick the railing off the side of the porch and was able to climb out the side.”

Albany firefighters arrived on the scene to help the couple.

No one was injured.
