      Severe storms rip through southwest GA

      A tree is blown down on Gatewood Dr. Sunday

      Severe thunderstorms with winds up to 50 miles per hour rolled through southwest Georgia Sunday afternoon.

      No one was hurt, but the storms left a big mess. Several trees came down on and near Ramsey Road, and the Victory Tabernacle Church on Sylvester Road lost its sign and awning. A service was in progress when the storm hit and Pastor Jose Mendoza says the winds were so bad, he thought it was a tornado.

      "I saw things blowing away and I came to the door, locked it and ran back because I saw the front of it, the building went out. When I got everybody back in the hallway I heard just the shingles just getting ripped apart," Mendoza said.
