People clean up after storms

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Lots of cleanup to do after powerful thunderstorms knocked down trees around South Georgia late Thursday afternoon.

 This big tree fell onto a mobile home in Pine Bluff Estates in east Dougherty County this evening.
 The property manager came in on his day off after getting a call from a maintenance worker about the tree.
 He pulled out his chainsaw and cut up the tree.
 It's something he's used to.

"Anytime we get a big storm, limbs come down. This is one of the worst ones, but every time,” said Kris Hatcher, Property Manager.

 Hatcher said other limbs also fell on homes on his property.
  No one was hurt and the damage wasn't severe.
