Powerful storms sweeping across Georgia

ATLANTA  — Much of central   Georgia  was under a tornado watch as a line of powerful storms swept through the state.

A flash flood warning was also issued for DeKalb County, where forecasters warned that heavy rains would cause flooding of small creeks and streams, as well as streets and underpasses.

In metro Atlanta, fire crews freed a 14-year-old child from a mobile home this morning after a tree crashed into a back bedroom of the residence. A 2-year-old child in the same mobile home was taken to a hospital.

The conditions of the teen and the younger child were not immediately known. The rescue operation took place in the Poplar Valley Mobile Home Park in southern Cherokee County.
