Strong thunderstorm winds are blamed for downing trees and some property damage Monday afternoon in Baldwin County.
National Weather Service meteorologist Shirley Lamback said tornadoes were ruled out after reports from the director of the local Emergency Management Agency and a review of photographs of the damage.
A tornado warning was issued for parts of Hancock and Warren counties at about 2:30 p.m. as Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado and a law enforcement officer reported a possible tornado just north of Milledgeville .
An investigative team was not dispatched to Milledgeville, Lamback said.
The preliminary storm damage report indicated that storms moving through at about 2 p.m. downed several trees three miles west of Milledgeville and ripped shingles off houses on Pettigrew Road. Trees also toppled on Jefferson Drive near Lake Sinclair. A twister was suspected when a porch was torn off a trailer but the debris was not consistent with funnel-shaped circulation.
