Thursday began the annual event known as "The Worlds Longest Yard Sale."  Vendors in our area were sent dashing for cover and covering up there yard sale items as strong storms moved through the area.  Shortly after 2 PM wind gusts of up to 57 miles per hour were reported in portions of Dade, Walker and Chattooga County.  The annual event which runs through Sunday, follows a route from Defiance, Ohio to Gadsden, Alabama.
