After the Storm with Bradford County Residents
Published March 25th, 2013
BRADFORD COUNTY- A severe weather system this weekend passed through parts of North Central Florida leaving downed power lines, hail and strong winds.
Saturday's system is being classified as a severe wind event.
The National Weather Service issued a severe thunder storm watch and a tornado warning Saturday for parts of Bradford County.
The Bradford County Emergency Management Office reports there were about 20 homes damaged by the storm system.
Spokesperson for the Bradford County Emergency Management Office, Michael Heeder says,"We don't have to worry about folks not knowing what to do when a storm system is coming and the hail picks up and winds start blowing they've learned to move to an interior area of the home, stay away from windows or any unsecured area that could be damaged."
Heeder says some of the most dangerous things to watch out for after a storm like this are downed power lines and standing water.
