They lost a lot of trees and power early on. Other than that I have no info on any structural damage that they may have sustained.

Small world - was monitoring Crisp County (Broadcastify) when y'all got toned out for roof collapse (oak tree) with entrapment. Also heard something about a LEO with car "trouble" ... and transformers popping like lightning. Stay Safe.
Yep, the lady was very fortunate to not be impaled, if her bed had been on a different side of the room she wouldn’t have made it. That is also a good reason to stay downstairs during a storm. Won’t name names, but a LEO did run into a downed tree. Understandable in the mess we were dealing with. Last I heard was 10,000 without power in Crisp. Dooly is likely that bad or worse. Drayton area had trees on two houses with entrapment. Thankful it wasn’t any worse.
 
Anyone hear anything about Taliaferro County/Crawfordville area? Don't see any EMA info on any of the city/county websites.
 
I tried google earth. Still old images. Daughter in law went to Tampa with grand kids. Said she heard from son today. Sheriff's department lost radio and 911. Only at&t is working for text msgs. Won't have power for 2 to 3 weeks. I want to load up motorhome and uhaul with supplies for them but I don't think they will let me into bay county

Although it is a common misconception that Google Earth images are real-time, they are not. There are, however, two ways to view nearly real-time satellite images on Google Earth. For three-hour old weather images, look for the Clouds layer, found under the new Weather layer folder. NASA also has a layer called DailyPlanet which shows the entire Earth, continuously updated in real-time at a medium resolution. For more Google Earth tips, read the Google Earth Blog.
Don't know if either method will work, but worth a try
 
You headed to black powder weekend?
Yup. Headed down tomorrow am to bowhunt for the day, then BP on Saturday. Taking a chainsaw, fuel, etc. just in case I gotta do some logging to get in. Bob G may be headed down to Sylvester with the trackhoe to dig out a friend, though.

Crazy how Michael was still a TS all the way into Virginia last night and into this morning causing flooding with rescues into late last night.
