Register residents clean up after storms

REGISTER, GA (WTOC) -

Bulloch County residents spent Friday clearing debris after storms struck Thursday night. 

Ibo Anderson, who lives on Ibo Anderson Lane in Register, GA, spent most of the day cleaning up his property.

"I thought it was going to blow the shop away. I looked and there was boxes and tree limbs just going all over the yard," he said.

Anderson said thankfully no one was hurt and his property was untouched. His sycamores and pecan trees, however, went down.

"The clean up, it's going to be a while. Still, I've seen a lot worse. We've got someone coming to pick up the tree limbs," Anderson said.

As storms go, Public Safety Director Ted Wynn said this was a relatively isolated storm, but this could be a trend for the summer.

"I think yesterday is an example of what we can expect for the forseeable future, that's afternoon severe thunderstorms," Wynn said. There's a Bermuda High sitting off the coast of Georgia at this time. It's bringing in the warm coast air with the cool influence from the north to create these thunderstorms."

Anderson said he is thankful the damage wasn't worse.
