Afternoon storms leave damage behind

By Kelly Hefelfinger

It took away some of the heat, but left a little damage behind.

In the Cherokee County town of Mixon, southwest of Troup, Monday afternoon's storms sent trees crashing down.

One property owner says 15 trees were knocked down, including two that landed on his son's home and one on a nearby storage building.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but the owner says it will take at least a week to clear out all the trees.
