There were also storm related deaths in Dodge and Butts Counties, and Atlanta police say a man was killed Tuesday morning when a tree fell on his car in Northwest Atlanta.
Thousands of people are still without electricity in Georgia and in the small South Georgia town of Damascus, there is no drinking water.
Hundreds of trees were uprooted, snapped and blown over across the state.
Many of them landed on homes and cars.
Insurance claims from the overnight storms will reach well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Schools closed today in Irwin County where downed trees made roads impassable for school buses.
Tiftarea Academy in Tifton closed today because of storm damage to the school.
Schools were also closed for the day in Cook County.
In Worth County, the small town of Poulan was hard hit, so was the Gordy community, just south of Sylvester.
Lots of damage is reported in Tift County, with thousands still without electricity.
Georgia Power, Mitchell EMC and Sumter EMC have all available crews working to restore power.
It may be well into the afternoon or evening before it's all back on.
In Donalsonville, half a city block went up in flames because of a lightning strike.
The fire burned an insurance agency, two beauty shops, a gift shop and a pool hall on Cherry Street before firefighters got it under control.
A lot of dangers remain around Georgia with so many damaged trees and downed power lines.
