Fortunately, stormy weather results in only minor damage
A stormy Thursday in Marshall County, which included tornado watches and warnings, produced only minor damage.
“It was not too bad in our area – nothing significant,” said Hugh Hollowell, emergency management coordinator for the county.
A tree fell on a shed on Lindsey Road, west of Byhalia off of Highway 178 and near the county line. It caused minor damage.
There was also flooding across Highway 309 in the Barton area.
On the other end of the county, at Bethlehem, strong winds caused a double-wide mobile home on Brownlee Road to move on its foundation about two inches, Hollowell said.
The brick underpinning on the back side was also knocked down.
“The lady was inside when it happened but not hurt,” he said.
Also, the box trailer portion of an 18-wheeler was turned over at the intersection of Highway 349 and Brownlee Road.
