Strong storms wreak havoc on Isles

Brunswick News - 04-19


A wave of thunderstorms that ripped across the Southeast U.S. on Friday crashed on the Golden Isles with violent force. The most destructive blow to land in Glynn County happened on the F.J. Torras Causeway, where a semitrailer was overturned by strong winds around 12:30 p.m. as the storms moved through the area. The semitrailer was draped over the barrier separating those coming and going from St. Simons Island near the Back River Bridge. The crash blocked both westbound lanes and one eastbound lane blocked of due to the crash.
