Severe weather moves across the western wiregrass

Local News

The brunt of the “severe” weather moved into the wiregrass between midnight and three o’clock Monday morning.

Here’s a look at how the “Supercells” moved across Geneva, Dale, and Coffee counties.
During a driving rainstorm in New Brockton, a lightning bolt and then
the explosion of a power transformer knocking out electricity to Central Coffee County.
In Enterprise at the intersection of Windham and South Quida, a large tree snapped in the high winds
knocking out several power-lines.

“I do think in a lot of ways’ we’re fortunate, we did not have any tornados. We did have a severe thunderstorm warning, but no injuries.,”
according to Coffee County Deputy EMA Director, Grant Lyons.
With some of the “Supercells” moving highway speed at more than 60 miles per hour, local officials say the severe weather moved
through the wiregrass quickly, and that proved to be a “good thing”.
