Trees on cars, homes, power lines across metro Atlanta

Posted: Updated:

A violent thunderstorm left a path of destruction throughout metro Atlanta and left a lot of people grateful they weren't hurt.

In Roswell, heavy winds toppled a tree onto two vehicles. Bob Cornetti said he was hunkered down in his basement when he heard the crash.

"I couldn't even see my truck. I knew it was real bad," Cornetti said. "We heard the sirens going off. It was bad. It was scary."

Near Hembree Road and Creek Park Drive in northeast Marietta, there were multiple trees on homes and cars.

"The trees just started coming down fast as can be," Tracy Bagwill said. "'I've been hit, I've been hit,' that's all I was thinking. What's really funny is I called my tree guy yesterday, and were going to have some trees taken down, and now they are down."

The system took about 20 minutes to pass through Roswell. Once it was gone, it left behind sunshine and a rainbow. People said at least they were grateful for that.

"It's beautiful out now," Cynthia Hardman said. "It was bad. We just hid in the basement and waited for it to stop. When we came up, it looked like a war zone."
