TLANTA (AP) — A line of strong thunderstorms moving through a large part of north Georgia left scattered power outages early Monday morning.
Georgia Power reported before dawn Monday that fewer than 1,500 customers statewide were without power as the storms continued to push south of metro Atlanta.
Some of the heaviest overnight rains hit Atlanta's northern suburbs.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that rainfall totals through 5 a.m. Monday were 1.35 inches in Marietta; 1.33 inches in Cartersville; and 1.29 inches in Chamblee.
WXIA-TV reports that around 2 a.m. Monday, a large oak tree crashed onto a home in Kennesaw where more than a dozen people had gathered for a Father's Day party. Homeowner Cathy Neher said the tree fell on two bedrooms , including the master bedroom where she and her husband were sleeping. No injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service reported that thunderstorms would be possible early this week across Georgia as upper-level disturbances combine with a moist and unstable environment. Forecasters say the main hazards will be gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy rain.
