      There were several reports of heavy winds and rain in Lowndes County Friday morning.

      There were eight homes with damage reported, one restaurant with reported damage, and several downed power lines.

      Paige Dukes, public information officer for Lowndes County, says their response to this type of weather event is part of their local emergency operations plan.

      "We were prepared for today," Dukes said. "We had crews set aside with our public works department that immediately go into action. I can't say enough about Lowndes County Fire and Rescue today. They were out the minute trees started going down."
