BATON ROUGE - As severe weather moves away from the WBRZ viewing area, reports of downed power lines, flooded streets, and damage to property are coming in.

"I heard the wind first, then a big boom!" Ernestine Williams told Channel 2. 

Her backyard, located on Hemlock Street in Baton Rouge, is littered with debris from the storm. The wind took a tree out, and it smashed straight through her roof.

"I had no idea it hit my house until I heard one of my grandchildren holler," she said.

Over 8,000 residents are currently without power in East Baton Rouge Parish.
