Description:



Authorities are investigating whether a tornado or high winds from a thunderstorm caused a building to collapse at a lumber processing plant in the Valdosta area, where four people were hospitalized. Police and fire officials told the Valdosta Daily Times four people were taken to the South Georgia Medical Center after the storm struck Langdale Forest Products on Monday. Erika Bennett of the South Georgia Medical Center says the four patients are in good condition. Three other people suffered minor injuries. Officials say high winds also overturned several railroad cars and caused roof damage to numerous buildings. Lowndes County Emergency Management Director Ashley Tye said officials could not confirm whether it was a tornado that struck. Tye said damage assessments would have to be done first.
