Life still is far from back to normal for some people nearly three months after that deadly tornado hit Southwest Georgia.

The Volunteer Chainsaw Group started helping with cleanup after the storms and their efforts haven’t stopped.

On Wednesday, volunteers helped clean up debris from at a home in the Radium Springs area.

Organizers say the family couldn't even get into their driveway since the Jan. 22 tornado.

The group has been going to houses all over the region talking with homeowners who may need help because the work is far from over.

"There's just a lot that needs to be done just for people to even start to get back to normal. Like these people can't even park their car. So just that normal stuff of parking your car. Forget about just returning to life as normal. [There's] a long ways to go," said the coordinator of the group Teresa Knight.

The group is asking anyone who can help with this cleanup to join them because the number of volunteers out there is getting lower.

If you’re interested in helping you can text Knight at (229) 881-7205.

They're also asking for donations from anyone who can to help keep the rental equipment they use and supplies.

Interested donors can take money to Gieryic's Automotive Repair on Dawson Road.

If you still need help clearing storm debris from your home, you can call the group and get them to come out and help you free of charge. Their number is 1(800) 451-1954.

This number is only for people who need help clearing storm debris.

You call and the line with log your number, then organizers will return your call as soon as possible.
