Overnight storms in Cobb caused flooding, down trees and power lines

The effects of the intense storms that swept through metro Atlanta last night were felt big-time in Cobb County.

Ross Cavitt, county spokesman, said Cobb road crews dealt with several flooded streets.

On Anderson Mill Road, he said, workers had to clean out a water basin. Paces Ferry Road at Delk Road also flooded.

And then there were the trees.

He said there were a dozen trees reported as down, some on homes and carports in addition to power lines, but no one was injured. According to the Cobb EMC map at 8:50 a.m., there were no power outages.

Some fallen trees blocked roads, including a big one on Burt Adams Road in Vinings.

He said crews are still working on clearing roads.

Smyrna spokeswoman Jennifer Bennett said about 10 a.m. that the number of calls that have come through its 911 center the past 12 hours wasn’t out of the norm.

Bennett said they had five medical calls, two trees on houses, one tree in the road, one down power line, four units flooded on Valley Oaks Drive due to rain, one storm drain overflow into a yard and one fallen traffic signal.
