There were also several delays at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.

A portion of Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta was partially blocked between 12th and 13th streets due to a toppled tree but the roadway has since been cleared.
Thankfully, the next chance for storms in metro Atlanta won't be until Friday, when we could see some morning thunderstorms.
