Following an investigation Monday night, Houston County EMA Director Clark Matthews says the damage was likely caused by heavy straight line winds.

Early reports indicated that a tornado may have caused the damage as many responders spotted a funnel in the air.

"We didn't see it touch down," Steve Long of the Pansey Volunteer Fire Dept. says. "We saw it when it was in the air. It was a big wedge embedded in rain. You could not see the funnel on the ground or anything like that, just a big wedge in the air."

Long says three people were inside the mobile home, but they escaped major injury. A car was also destroyed.

EMA Director Clark Matthews says only downed trees have been reported in regards to other damage caused by heavy winds and storms.
