Clarke County Tornado Damage

December 19, 2019

 

 

 

In Clarke county where 15 buildings were damaged, of those five homes were destroyed.

 

While tornadoes aren’t uncommon this time of year, some people in county were caught off guard.

 

 “We’re not used to tornadoes in this area here, so it’s pretty uncommon, unfortunately the last year and a half, this is the second tornado to hit within about, I’d say a two hundred yard radius, so I mean, as far as a needle in a haystack we found it twice, so that’s very uncommon and very unfortunate, particularly tragic here”, said Taylor Chunn, resident.

 

 

Clarke County Emergency Management is asking that if there is severe damage in your area, that you should report it immediately, as their team works toward the clean up.
