Hurricane Michael has left Atlanta with some power outages and downed trees.
A tree fell on a vehicle on Anderson Avenue in northwest Atlanta, police said around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday. A 31-year-old female was trapped; she has been extricated and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with internal injuries.
Atlanta police also reported a single car accident on I-75/85 NB at University Avenue, and a power outage in Buckhead near Habersham and W. Wesley roads that has since been restored.
A tree was also knocked down on wires in the 1000 block of Euclid Avenue near Five Points.
In East Point, a “big tree” that fell west of Paul D. West Middle School caused an outage affecting the areas of Headland Drive, Connally Drive, Bryant Rd, Ben Hill Rd, and Dodson Drive, a spokeswoman said. A tree also fell on Connally Drive, affecting the areas of Connally Drive, Stanton Road, Woodberry Avenue and Lawrence Avenue.
The storm that battered Florida and Georgia was downgraded to a tropical storm overnight, Channel 2 Action News Meteorologist Karen Minton said.
