City of Griffin and Spalding County first responders are working calls related to this afternoon’s weather.

According to Griffin Fire-Rescue Chief Tommy Jones, his personnel has responded to a few calls, but nothing serious.

Jones said reports of people being trapped in a residence in Griffin are false.

Spalding County Fire Department Chief Kenny West said he had personnel responding to two incidents involving weather-related damage.

“We’ve got a couple of calls out right now in reference to some trees down on power lines,” West said.

He also confirmed a tree is down in the area of Experiment Street, and that has resulted in a partial road blockage.

West said that as of this interview, there has not been confirmation of a tornado touching down or causing damage in Griffin-Spalding County.

Neither Griffin Fire-Rescue nor the Spalding County Fire Department has received any reports of injuries resulting from the weather.
