Description of weather in Baxely on April 28 from Nancy Sellers
"I live just off Rt 1 North of Baxley and what we believe was a tornado came thru during the nite--That 'Freight train' sound briefly as well as regular storm wind and rains. Numerous houses, outbuildings and yards close-by damaged quite a lot and cousin/neighbor just 1/10th mi away had outbuildings demolished, trees uprooted debris stren everywhere and houses heavily damaged. Electricity was out for quite awhile also."
