When strong winds ripped through Bibb County's Ousley Place neighborhood Saturday, four teenage girls enjoying a sleepover say they woke up to sounds of rattling and trees crashing.
Cheyanne Hamilton, 15, remembers waking up to her sister's screams.
"She yelled 'get on the ground, get on the ground,'" Hamilton said.
Hamilton, her sister, and two friends say they ducked down besides the beds they had been sleeping in, to protect themselves from the sounds of crashing outside their windows.
"I was like 'there's a tree falling, there's a tree falling,'" Hamilton said.
"I was in the room with Cheyanne and she grabbed on to me," Hope Kearnes, 15, of Bibb County said. "I didn't know what was going on."
The friends had been sleeping over her house, Hamilton said, when strong storms ripped through parts of north Bibb County shortly before 6 a.m.
