ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) Two people have been transported to a local hospital after suffering injuries from a canopy being blown from the top of Ponce City Market.

According to Atlanta Police, electrical wires were also downed during the incident. The damage comes on the heels of severe weather and thunderstorms that have rolled through parts of metro Atlanta since Sunday morning.

As a result of the blown canopy and downed power lines, both directions of Ponce De Leon Avenue are blocked.
