Southwest Georgia Hit Hard By Damaging Wind And Rain

By  | 

Officials in Grady County say parts of the county experienced a minimum of 4 inches of rainfall in a short span of time.

Emergency management officials say a house caught fire after it was struck by lightning and roads were closed off due to flooding.

Also, the annual "Member Guest" tournament was delayed due to the large amount of storm debris on the golf course.

"We've got 3 large trees down and numerous big limbs all over the golf course and our greens and tees were pretty covered with debris this morning," said Eric Hair, Superintendent at Cairo Country Club.

Emergency management officials estimate it will take up to two days to clean up all the debris from the storm.
