GADSDEN COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) — In Gadsden County, Wednesday's storm was so powerful it sent trees crashing down onto homes.

St. John's community in Gadsden County suffered a lot of damage from Wednesday's storm.

One neighbor said a tree fell right through his home, into his children's room. Luckily, no one was in the room at the time.

The City of Gretna Fire Department said one man was in his room when a tornado came through.

Canvas teams will go home to home to ensure no one is trapped in their home, and to assess damage.

GCSO says they won't know how much damage there is until the sun comes up.
