ATLANTA (AP) - At least one person has been killed by the severe storm system moving across Georgia.
Atlanta Fire Rescue Department spokesman Capt. Bill May says one person was killed Monday when a tree fell on a car in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood.
He didn't know the victim's name or age.
National Weather Service officials say the storm system is
producing wind gusts of more than 55 mph, sending trees and
branches crashing down on power lines. Georgia Power officials say at least 130,000 customers in metro Atlanta are without service.
Forecasters expect the hazardous weather could bring up to 3
inches of rain to north and middle Georgia, with flooding possible
near rivers and creeks.
Another round of violent weather is expected Monday evening.
