ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Wind gusts between 20 to 25 miles per hour are forecast to continue tomorrow in South Georgia, and experts say trees could fall because of the very wet ground.
Friday cleanup continued at Gary Ham's yard, after that huge 90 foot tall old oak fell this week.

Ham was inside the greenhouse when the tree hit, and it was flattened.  He crawled out unharmed.
With the tree removed, you can see the destruction.

Ham said "Five different buildings, Out structures, completely destroyed. If you look at it, it's almost like a tornado hit it. I can almost relate to a tornado victim."
Ham says most of his equipment inside those buildings were crushed, including boats and a travel trailer.  Removing all that tree is expected to take four days.
