Poarch Creek Band hit by hurricane storms

Storms and twisters related to Hurricane Dennis have hit the Poarch Creek Band of Alabama, causing power outages and some damage on the reservation.

At least one elderly tribal member had to be evacuated when winds tore off the roof of his house. One injury was reported when a tree branch fell on a man's head.

The most extensive damage occurred to the powwow grounds, said former chairman and current council member Eddie Tullis. Some homes also suffered roof damage, he said. Some power lines were also downed.

The reservation was hit by Hurricane Ivan last September.
