Falling trees can injure and kill

Falling trees can injure and kill

ATLANTA -- Another round of storms means another round of fallen trees in Metro Atlanta.

LaShaundra Stansel is recovering after a huge tree crushed her car as she was driving home Sunday night on Henderson Mill Road.

"I saw the tree falling.  I tried to swerve, but I felt it as it came down across my seat and the passenger's seat," said Stansel.

Stansel managed to duck right before the tree struck and walked away from the accident with a split lip and a large bump on her forehead.

Not everyone has been so lucky this season.

Storms leave behind yard trash, don't put it to the curb

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- Storms over the past several weeks have brough heavy rains and a lot of wind gusts.  That means trees have been brought down and limbs have fallen.

But, getting rid of that "tree trash" may be more difficult that you might have thought.  Unless you have a compost pile or a place on your property to dispose of the yard waste, you're probably going to have to make a trip.

ATLANTA -- Another band of showers and storms will likely move into Metro Atlanta Thursday evening.  Showers and storms will become more widely scattered than Wednesday's storms, but a few storms will still be capable of packing a wallop with locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds, hail, and frequent lightning.

The forecast is calling for a general risk for a strong thunderstorm or two across northern and central Georgia.  However the Storm Prediction Center has placed a small portion of eastern Georgia in a slight risk zone for severe storms.

Forecast models indicate the possibility for new rainfall totals ranging from 1/4" to 3/4" rainfall and isolated spots receiving over 2 inches by Friday morning.
