All across the gulf coast from southeast Mississippi to northwest Florida, a strong storm system brought lightning, rain and high winds. This is what it looked like in Daphne around 3:30 this afternoon. The storm also brought damage to Old County Road in Daphne where half a dozen trees are said to be down in just a four to five block area. One tree blocked traffic near Bayside Academy’s football field.
“The woman in this house over here was on the front porch and heard it, came outside. She thought it was a tornado. We weren’t here for it, we just drove home front the restaurant up the street, and we found this,” says Alex O’Brien.
