Columbia County Damage
COLUMBIA COUNTY - Families are cleaning up the mess the strong storms left behind in North Central Florida.
Columbia County resident Bill Amburn cleaned his yard.
" (I) Hadn't cleaned it until this morning," Amburn said.
Amburn is raking up the loose limbs that were left behind.
"There's no warning, just whoosh," Amburn said.
The "whoosh" was the sound of tree branches snapping around his house around 8 o'clock Wednesday morning.
The National Weather Service said strong storms raced through southern portion of Columbia County, the winds knocked down power lines and poles.
When Amburn came to inspect his house he noticed a branch had punctured a hole in the roof.
The branch landed only just feet away from the master bedroom.
"That big limb went through the roof on that side is the big damage," Amburn said.
Richard Amburn along with his brother Lynn are out removing the tree branches to make a clear path.
"I just threw my tools in my truck and headed on up I knew a lot needed to be done," Richard Amburn said.
The Amburn family had an insurance adjuster to come out and inspect the property for damage.
