PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

Some graves at Pine Grove Cemetery in Phenix City are still in ruins after a storm unearthed multiple headstone slabs and burial vaults.

Multiple, exposed graves could be seen from the cemetery's border as rain water continued to flush down the street.

A toppled tree also rested on the mound of displaced graves. 

Debris floated into the road on Monday night, making the area inaccessible to nearby homeowners.

We reached out to officials with Phenix City's cemetery maintenance about clean-up efforts and are still awaiting their reply.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
