VIDEO: Forsyth County dispatches chainsaw brigade to remove downed tree

Earlier this evening the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office announced road closures due to flooding and a downed tree brought on by heavy rain. In the past half hour came the sound of chainsaws indicating the road may soon open again.

Buford Highway (GA 20) and Windermere Parkway were water and mud logged while Old Atlanta Road at Azalea Bluff was impassible due to a newly horizontal tree.

Looks like that'll be cleared up soon:
