Another round of outages, cleanup after storms

ATLANTA -- Monday night's fast-moving storms weren't nearly as bad as what we saw a week ago, but people in parts of North Georgia are again cleaning up damage. 

Early Tuesday morning, crews were clearing a tree dangling over power lines in a south Fulton County neighborhood near Roosevelt Highway and Bluffington Road. In Chattooga County, crews worked to repair downed power lines. Trees were uprooted across the region and fell on at least two homes -- one on Lakeview Avenue near Lindbergh Drive and Peachtree Road in Buckhead and another in Rome.

Thousands of Georgia Power and Georgia EMC customers lost power, but by Tuesday afternoon everyone was back on line.

The National Weather Service had issued several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and tornado watches, which have since expired, as the storm entered the state. But, the line of storms fell apart and weakened as it moved closer to Metro Atlanta. 

The storms still brought bursts of heavy rain, frequent flashes of lightning and raucous thunder as they swept through the region at a rate of 40 to 60 miles per hour.
