Storm Damage in Tallahassee


Even though the storms on Wednesday were mostly green on the radar-- they pulled quite a number in the Tallahassee area.

The power was knocked out in several spots-- and tress are still down in a couple of areas.

The city of Tallahassee had more than nine-thousand people without power earlier this evening in several sections of the city.

One of the biggest outages was along U.S. 90 (Mahan Drive), where a tree knocked out power to several areas.

The city says most power has since been restored.

The heavy wind and rain also caused a tree to fall over on a car, trapping two people inside.

Witnesses say the car's passenger got out through the back window.

EMS crews later pulled out the driver.

Brent McClellan a Witness and Paddock Club Apartment Resident describes the scene, "I thought it was a tornado, so I ran out on my porch, then the trees were blowing over really hard, and at that time, the car was coming by, it's like slow motion, the tree just came down right on top of the car, cracked like lightning, and it just came right down."

The car's driver and the passenger were taken to the hospital. There's no word on the extent of their injuries.
