ST. MARY’S, Ga. (WSAV) – A tornado has touched down in the downtown St. Mary’s area, according to the Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA).

Video from an RV park on the base shows mobile homes overturned, trees down and debris scattered.

About 10 people were injured and taken to hospitals by ambulance, Bassett said.

Filming the damage, Sergio Rodriguez called it “utter chaos.”

Camden County EMA is asking residents to shelter in place.
