LAKE CITY, Fla. -- Missing business signs are a common sight in Lake City following a strong line of storms that pressed through the area. Columbia County is in a state of emergency.
Trees on cars and houses, missing signs and even missing roofs are the eyesores of the day in Lake City.
"A couple of trees fell in my grandma's yard and one hit my car," Leon McCutchen of Lake City said. "Fell on the back of the roof and caved it in. Every window popped out of it."
McCutchen said he heard a loud boom and walked outside to find out what happened.
"It sounded like a big lightning bolt, then I came out and my car was gone."
It's his only mode of transportation, so Leon had to drive his car to work this morning with no windows until he can contemplate his next move.
"To get another body to put my motor in and redo it."
He's having to compromise, because the insurance isn't going to provide much relief.
"They're only going to give me $500. Might as well get you another car and go about your business."
And there continues to be power outages all across Columbia County. Florida Power and Light says they have 1,000 customers without power. At least 10 power crews from South Florida are pitching in to help with the cleanup. One employee told Action News he expects power to be restored by the end of the day.
