I hope nobody here lost much in the Atlanta storm. I saw some of the videos and it looked as though Sherman had returned.

I have several relatives in and around Atlanta. No word. But I live by the motto, "No news is good news." In this case, I hope I'm right.

I'm north of Atlanta and we were under tornado warnings for quite a bit of the day. Had a lot of hail, lost power for about eight hours, but other than a few limbs and a lot of migrating mulch, we didn't have any damage.

Downtown looks awful! I heard there was one fatality, but I think that was outside of Atlanta. Not sure of all the details, I was without TV and internet all day! :(

Is jst5150 from Atlanta? Has anyone heard from him?

He's south of Atlanta. I think they had a pretty heavy band go through the south side, but again, been without news all day! I did see that the fatality was in northwest GA, probably around Cherokee/Cobb, and the only peep I know of from that area is RumpleTumbler. Ben Bradley is probably a little too north to have gotten the worst of it.
