Storm Damage in The Aroney Area



For Immediate Release                                                     

April 30, 2014


Storm Damage in The Aroney Area


             On April 28th night and into the next morning severe weather moved through the Aroney area damaging several houses, churches, and buildings. The heavily affected areas were on County Roads 4, 25, 29, 455 and Highway 227 and 221. The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office was able to secure and assess damage in the area with the help from Geraldine, Crossville, Fyffe, and Collinsville Police Departments. Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson, Deputies and Officers stayed on the scene all night and throughout the next day patrolling the area and blocking off roads that had tree down and other damage. Patrol will continue 24 hours a day in this area until everything is cleaned up.

          During the storms Sheriff Jimmy Harris became ill and the next morning was taken to the hospital and had to have his gallbladder removed. Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson states “that the Doctors had been telling him that he needed this surgery and that he would have been out there with his Deputies if it wasn’t for these unforeseen circumstances. It is heart breaking to see the affects of these storms but it is great to see how the community pulls together to help one another in time of need. We have always seen this in DeKalb County. That is what make this County a good place to live and raise a family.”
