Middle Georgia sees some wind damage, flood threat lessens

Gusty winds are blamed for isolated reports of damage Tuesday night in Johnson and Dodge counties.

At about 9 p.m., a barn collapsed near Friendship UMC Road and Hardy Road about two miles southwest of Dubois in Dodge County, according to the National Weather Service’s preliminary storm report.

Nearly an hour later in Johnson County, three large trees toppled in Kite and lightning damaged a building on Calvary Church Road near the Oconee River.

Patches of fog will be the biggest problem early Wednesday.

More showers and and a few thunderstorms are expected Wednesday through Sunday, but National Weather Service forecasters expect between 2 and 3 inches of rain to be spread out over time, which reduces the threat of flash flooding even with saturated ground.
