Tropical Storm Zeta tore through Georgia overnight, bringing heavy rain and high winds that toppled trees and power lines across metro Atlanta and much of North Georgia.
The governors of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi each declared a state of emergency ahead of the Category 2 hurricane. "Pray for God's protection," Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves said.
Zeta is the 11th hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season, and would be the fifth named storm to make landfall in Louisiana this year — the most since the state started keeping records in 1851.
