OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) - People in Chickasaw County are also picking up the pieces after Tropical Storm Olga left behind a mess.
The damage in Okolona is similar to what other counties and towns are dealing with: down trees, scattered branches, debris and trash.
People have been cleaning their yards and determining what to do next.
WTVA spoke with a woman who said a tree crushed the gate at her home before falling onto a nearby phone pole.
She’s concerned insurance may not cover the repairs.
Phil Johnson described the scary moments he experienced on Saturday.
"I've never seen it before. It was a tremendous wind,” he said. “I was scared to walk out of my carport because I was afraid a limb was going to fall on me because, you know, they fall and stick up in the ground and it is very dangerous. It was a terrible time."
Johnson said he is fortunate his home did not sustain as much damage compared to others in Okolona.
Lazarus Haynes and his dad spent Tuesday helping clear debris from a neighbor’s yard.
The yard, near Main Street in Okolona, was completely covered with leaves and sticks before the father-son duo began their work in the morning.
Haynes said he and his father have been doing yard work for 10 years, but the past few days have been a bit tougher than he is used to.
“Oh yeah, the storm gave us a lot to deal with this year,” he said.
Okolona residents are asked to pile their debris by the roadside for the Public Works Department to pick the debris up.
