Bass Street S.E. at Grant Street was one of the closed areas in Atlanta after Irma came through. It has since re-opened.

Parts of six roads in Atlanta are closed Friday due to felled trees, wires and other hazards caused by Tropical Storm Irma Monday, police said. That number is down from the 30 blocked roads police reported Wednesday, and the 60 blocked roads reported the day before. 

The storm killed two people in metro Atlanta due to fallen trees — a 59-year-old man in Sandy Springs and a 57-year-old woman in Forsyth County.

The Atlanta Police Department provided a list of closed areas — broken down by zone — accurate as of 2:15 p.m.
