Storm hits Tattnall County farmland


Neighbors along Ted Kicklighter Road near Glennville saw only minor to moderate damage when a storm swept through Monday afternoon.

Bill Kicklighter said it hit approximately 3:15 p.m. and lasted only three to four minutes. But it pulled the wall down from a family member's shed. In addition, it ripped sheets of tin from various roofs of barns and storage buildings. Across the road, it rolled a wooden playhouse into an adjacent field. In the same field, it blew and scattered at least 100 to 200 pounds of cotton off a module waiting for transport to the gin. Kicklighter said the storm left just as quickly as it came.

He said he and others were thankful the damage was no worse than it was and that no one was hurt.
