We're seeing more cleanup from those Sunday night storms that swept through much of Central Georgia, including the Dodge County community of Gresston.

Charidy Parkerson's home was damaged by high winds.

A small shed in her back yard was demolished.

Debris is scattered around her neighbor's property.

Her trampoline was found in pieces.

A camper was flipped over by the wind and rolled several times.

The wind also picked-up the roof of her porch and carried it away.
