Dozens of homes were damaged by a storm that rolled through northwest Georgia late Wednesday night, toppling trees and knocking out power to thousands of customers.

Floyd County Emergency Management Agency Director Scotty Hancock tells WSB Radio that an estimated 50 to 100 homes are damaged in a path of destruction between a mile and a half and two miles long.
