(WRDW) At least three homes and a church were damaged in a possible tornado just after 7 p.m. Tuesday, Glascock Emergency Management Agency representative said.

Glascock EMA said a mobile home was moved from its foundation, a tree struck another and another home suffered roof and window damage.

At its peak, 22 people people were without power and power lines were down along Magnolia Church Road, officials said. A temporary shelter was set up for those who were without power.

EMA Director Mike Lyons initially said a tornado touched down.

The Magnolia Baptist Church off Highway 171 sustained significant damage, but no one was said to be inside at the time of the storm.

Jennifer Pennington, director of the Augusta chapter of the Red Cross, said volunteers were sent out to Gibson Tuesday night to help two families affected by the storm with food, shelter and clothing. A third family is expected to receive assistance on Wednesday.

No injuries have been reported at this time.

The National Weather Service is currently surveying the damage to try to figure out if a tornado did, in fact, touch down on Tuesday night.
