Strong and severe thunderstorms swept through the southeastern United States on Monday.
News 4 This Morning's producer drove through one of those storms on Highway 231 north Monday Morning. The storm had dark ominous clouds, followed by a downpour of rain. Some lightning strikes were observed as well.
Much of the area was placed under a Tornado Watch at the time, and several counties in the Wiregrass went under Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for the threat of potentially-damaging straight-line winds.
