Except for two years serving in the military, 70-year-old Doug Morris said he’s lived in Lula all his life. Recalling the severe weather brought by Hurricane Irma six weeks ago that toppled a tree on top of the roof of his house and damaged his kitchen, Morris said it was the worst storm he’s seen since a tornado hit Lula in the mid-1980s.
