ATLANTA – Strong winds brought down trees and knocked out power to some homes in the metro Atlanta area on Tuesday.
In Marietta, a tree crashed onto a home on Sugar Creek Drive, trapping two women. It took first-responders 45 minutes to get the tree off of the women. One woman was airlifted to a hospital, while the other was taken away by ambulance, police said.
Marietta Street in Atlanta was blocked between Spring Street and Fairlie Street due to broken glass in the roadway, the Atlanta Police Department tweeted.
