GAINESVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

Dozens of people became stranded at Lake Lanier after two ramps overturned leading to docks at Aqualand Marina in Gainesville.

More than 20 people had to be rescued Sunday, when the docks became detached during a fast-moving storm. A boat also sank during the storm near Russell Bridge.

The owner of the boat was contacted and no one was on board.

"All the boats hit each other like dominoes," said T.J. Smith. "It just came out of nowhere. Sunny and then downpour."

No word on when the docks will be repaired.
