News No Comments on Tornado outbreak leaves damage across metro Atlanta

Three radar-confirmed tornadoes moved through metro Atlanta Wednesday afternoon leaving a trail of damage in their paths.

The first tornado touched down near Temple in Carroll County, moving through Haralson and Paulding counties as well. The second tornado started near Six Flags in Cobb County. It moved through Vinings and into the center of Buckhead. The last tornado was in the Johns Creek, Cumming and Buford areas.

National Weather Service crews will go to those areas to assess and confirm the tornadoes on Thursday.

No injuries have been reported from the storms, which knocked down trees and power lines across the metro area but thousands of customers are without power.

In Duluth, a tree fell on a home on Tina Court while a man was inside.

“My uncle’s room is all damaged,” Jannett Vidal said. “I got really scared because the next room is my room and I have a son. He’s almost two years and, you know, imagine if we were home.”

In Buckhead, several trees fell across roads. Crews quickly worked to remove large trees blocking Arden and Habersham roads. Several trees also fell in the area of Northside Drive and Moores Mill Road.

The weather has so far ceased on any tornado watches and heavy rain and is expected to be clear tomorrow for the Atlanta area and surrounding cities.
