Roads are clear of debris a week after an EF-2 tornado struck the Summerfield/Ocmulgee area of Dallas County. But, acres and acres of stripped timber will bear evidence of the wind for a while.
(Notice the red dirt on the uprooted tree at left. While Dallas County is part of the Black Belt region, the northern section is red clay and hilly. There's a lot of sandy loam south of the Alabama River, but the western part has Blackland Prairie soil that is prime land for raising cattle and catfish. Then, not all Black Belt prairie soils are black. Some are gray, brown, red and white. But, that's another post for another day!)
