Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan said Calhoun City was hit hard by mother nature.
“Light poles have been snapped off. Trees in a few homes. Trees on vehicles. Damage to several businesses. Fortunately, we have had no reports at this time of injuries,” Pollan posted on Facebook, asking people to stay off the roads. “Emergency personnel are working feverishly to open the roads as quickly as possible.”
Emergency crews are working to assess the damage, and they’re urging residents to stay home.
