ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A huge oak tree fell through a home on Sing Road Monday. Crews have less than 24 hours to get it cleaned up before another round of storms hit. 

Worth County Fire and Rescue responders have been cleaning up all Tuesday. 

"Just yesterday, we had 15 structures that were damaged and four businesses. And that was just from rain and wind," said Fire Chief Tim Hayes. 

Now they have to prepare for whatever Wednesday may bring.

"We plan on bringing in whatever folks we need to bring in tomorrow, we're prepared for the worst," said Hayes. 

Businesses, like Singletary Tire, had severe damage from high winds on Monday.

"Once we all got down in the pit, the building started shaking. The next thing we know, the tin roof started peeling off piece by piece," said Molly Cooper, Singletary Tire. 

People in Worth County are scared of what Mother Nature could do again to a county that has been hit three times already this year. 

"We have had quite a bit of experience with damage assessment and first responding already. We didn't have any injuries or deaths so we're hoping for that this time too," said Hayes. 

"It's very scary. We're just praying that the good lord won't let anything bad happen again," said Cooper.
