PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (AP) - Severe storms are sweeping across
much of north Georgia, generating heavy rain, hail and winds that
downed trees and powerlines.
Flights were delayed for up to 90 minutes at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as dark gray clouds swirled in from the west.
A possible tornado was reported in northwest Georgia's Chattooga County.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Peachtree City were so busy tracking the storms that they could not immediately confirm the twister.
Georgia Emergency Management Agency spokesman Ken Davis says
there's a report of three possible tornadoes striking in Franklin
County, more than a 100 miles away in northeast Georgia.
Heavy storms also pelted several counties south of Atlanta.
