Strong storms in North Fulton County topple trees

Posted: Updated:

High wind and heavy rain sent trees tumbling on top of homes and cars.

Bob Cornetti and his wife huddled inside their basement on Meadowglen Trail when they heard the unmistakable sound of a tree falling to the ground.

"The only thing I heard was cracking of roots being pulled out of the ground," Cornetti said.

When the Cornettis went outside to survey the damage, they saw a massive tree crushing their pickup and another car.

"My favorite truck is not my favorite truck anymore," Cornetti said.

The tree barely missed their house.

"We're blessed and nobody got hurt," Cornetti said.

A tree also grazed Michael Martino's home.

He said he and his family were lucky.

"As long as everyone is healthy. That's all that really matters," Martino said.
