Strong storms disrupted Sunday afternoon as they moved across Southwest Georgia. 

Video shot from the WALB studio caught some of the intense wind and rain that pelted the area.

There were several reports of trees down in Lee County, Americus and even in Moultrie.

And a home and shed were damaged in Worth County.

A viewer video shows the storm that swept through Worth County on Saturday.
