Rose City Cleanup

Thomasville emergency workers say falling trees were the biggest problem in the area. After a soggy day, the cleanup is underway in the Rose City.

Heavy rains, high winds and falling trees kept Thomasville emergency workers busy.

LT Bill Sangster of the Thomasville Fire Department said, "We're getting trees on power lines, building alarms and trees over roadways, and we did have a vehicle accident."

A tree came crashing down on a passing car on South Pinetree Boulevard early Sunday. Firefighters say the driver escaped with only minor injuries.

"We would like to ask everyone unless they absolutely have to go somewhere to stay home, to monitor the radio/television channels and if they have a weather radio, monitor that, and just sit home and try to ride it out," Chris Jones, Director of Thomas County EMA.

While fallen trees caused many head aches and power outages around the area, EOC officials did have one piece of good news.

"Flooding seems to be okay. Hopefully, since the rain has slacked up a little bit, that shouldn't be a problem," added Jones.

So as Thomasville begins its cleanup job from Hurricane Dennis, Rose City residents can breath a sigh of relief. Emergency workers in south Georgia's Grady and Decatur Counties also reported some downed trees and power lines.
