DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - A warning for motorists driving around Albany. There have been reports of a number of trees being blown over during Wednesday afternoon's heavy rainstorms.

A tree fell along West Roosevelt Avenue early Wednesday evening.

Experts said the large amount of rain that fell wet the ground, loosened the roots, making them susceptible to falling in the strong winds.

The tree did not hit any cars and was soon moved out of the roadway.

Still, motorists are warned to drive safely, watching for fallen limbs or trees.
