Weekend storm downs trees

Weekend storm downs trees

A storm on Saturday evening, April 25, brought heavy winds and downed some trees in Evans County. Power outages were also reported, but no wrecks occurred as a result of the storm.
The largest tree down was on Bay Branch Rd. between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. “Our biggest tree was the one out there on Bay Branch Church Rd,” said Sheriff Randall Tippins. “They had to get the front end loader to get it out.” 
The tree just missed the power line and transformer. “It had to wiggle to get by it. If it had been hit everybody out Bay Branch would have been out (of power) about all night,” Tippins said.
