Chattooga County Commissioner along with Chattooga County Public Works and EMA Director Eddie Henderson had a long day on Sunday as the cleanup and damage assessment continued in Chattooga County as the result of an F1 Tornado that struck in the early hours of Sunday Morning.

Commissioner Jason Winters said that two separate crews worked from just after mid-night on Sunday and throughout the day clearing downed trees that had roads blocked.  Commissioner Winters said that both of the county’s Gradealls were a valuable asset to workers in getting roads open and debris cleared from the storm.

Winters told AM 1180 late Sunday evening that clean up from the storm would take days in some of the more remote areas of the county that received damage.
