Troup County is under a tornado watch until 3 p.m. Saturday after a round of storms moved through the area this morning.


Sheriff James Woodruff said there were trees down and scattered power outages south of LaGrange after the storm, which put the area under a tornado warning from about 8:30 to 9 a.m. Saturday.


A downtown rain gauge stood at 3.8 inches at 11:45 a.m. After the storm, traffic lights at LaGrange Mall and I-85 weren’t working and lots of standing water was reported on the streets and ditches. Lawns in low-lying areas were covered along Roanoke and New Franklin roads.
