Authorities say at least seven people were injured in Georgia as powerful storms roared across the state Thursday, damaging homes, downing trees and zapping power. National Weather Service meteorologist Robert Garcia said a survey team plans to visit Gordon County Friday afternoon to determine whether a tornado was responsible for destroying one home and damaging several others near Calhoun.
The National Weather Service says there's a chance of severe storms hitting north and central Georgia. A storm system was moving into the state on Tuesday. Severe thunderstorms could sweep through metro Atlanta Tuesday night as cooler air collides with the warm air mass that sent pre-Thanksgiving temperatures to record levels.
