Posted: Updated:

South Georgia is bracing for the arrival of possibly severe weather.

The National Weather Service just issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Calhoun, Dougherty, Randolph & Terrell Counties until 11:45 AM

Several parts of our area are under tornado watches right now.

Much of central Georgia was under a tornado watch as a line of powerful storms swept through the state, toppling trees and flooding streets.

 In metro Atlanta, fire crews freed a 14-year-old child from a mobile home Saturday morning after a tree crashed into a back bedroom of the Cherokee County residence. Fire officials said the girl, who was alert and conscious and was talking to paramedics during the rescue operation, was in serious condition.

 A 2-year-old child in the same mobile home was taken to a hospital to be treated for abrasions.

 Georgia Power reported that more than 10,000 customers were without power Saturday morning.

 More than 2,000 of the outages were in Rabun County in far northeast Georgia, with most of the rest scattered throughout north Georgia.
