Storm clean-up: Mobile County residents clear debris from Thursday’s storms

Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – People in Mobile are still cleaning up debris, two days after strong winds and storms blew through the area.

A tree still covers part of the road on Hawthorne Place. News 5 spoke with several people across the area around Spring Hill College Saturday, who were cleaning up, or had already cleaned up the mess.

On Austill Lane, the majority of a tree is still in one family’s front yard. They tell us they weren’t able to get out of their driveway for a whole day. Powerlines are still down at the entrance of their driveway.

Just off Bit and Spur Road, members of the Grace Bible Church cleaned up ahead of Easter Sunday.

They tell us they’ll even be using some of what the storm left behind in the Easter Egg Hunt Sunday.

“We’re actually going to use to even hide the eggs! You just take what the Lord gives you. We do need the rain, and there are things, like debris that comes down. So we looked at the debris as a good thing, we get to hide the eggs under for the kids to go after,” said Andrew Bates, an elder and youth pastor at the church.

The church tells us the damage could have been much worse, the tree limb narrowly missed their security cameras and sign.
