Neighbor hit by tornado warns to take weather warnings seriously

A Colbert County neighborhood is still cleaning up after a tornado blew down trees and fences and stuck a trampoline in a tree this week.

A Colbert County neighborhood is still cleaning up after a tornado blew down trees and fences and stuck a trampoline in a tree this week.

Neighbors and workers in Aycock Heights say they’re getting closer, but it will still take a few days to get things back to normal. An EF-1 tornado tore through early Sunday morning.

On Friday workers chopped up fallen trees, restored power lines, and helped with the damage from the 100-mile per hour winds.

“Don’t take it lightly when they say bad weather’s in the area, for sure,” said Jeffery Terry, whose property got hit by the twister. “Make sure you go to a storm shelter or get in the closet or safest place. That was something we did. Bad weather? ‘Okay, it’ll blow over.’ But now we know, look at it seriously.”

On his property there were people working in the front and the back. He thinks it’ll only take one more day of clean-up.
