I Thought We Were Going To Get Blown Away last night!
Two tornadoes did touch down across Metro Atlanta!
We were watching the weather and they kept saying a bad thunderstorm was coming all day! Finally about 7:00 P.M. it started getting dark out. They were predicting 70 – 80 mph winds and large hail. Ya know, they say that all the time, so you don’t really think much about it anymore. We were just sitting in the living room, talking about the weathermen. Someone said, “we’ll probably get two drops of rain”. And I said “yep, that’s usually what happens”.
Well it did storm here but we got lucky! It wasn’t bad. Some areas around us got hit pretty hard! There are lots of huge trees down and some houses damaged. I don’t think anyone got hurt so that’s awesome!
The sky looked so eerie! I thought maybe we really were going to get a tornado this time! Unfortunately, some places around us, did. A few people lost their houses, some just had damage and some cars were hit by trees. Plus a lot of people don’t have power. And that’s always painful!
There were multiple reports of downed trees throughout north Georgia. The National Weather Service forecasters say falling trees left two people with non-life threatening injuries in Canton.
This tree root is huge! So glad this little fellow is alright!
Georgia Power officials say a system of severe thunderstorms has left about 65,000 customers without power.
This is the tornado that hit Dunwoody, GA! This is not very far from us at all! We really got lucky last night! I’m glad I didn’t hear the sirens go off!
