Tornado warning issued in northwest Georgia near Atlanta

ATLANTA — The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for areas of northwest Georgia.

The tornado warning covers Carroll, Harrison and Paulding counties and expires at 6:45 p.m.

Forecasters have said damaging winds would be the main threat as storms moved into Georgia Thursday evening. Tornado watches have been issued for other parts of northwest Georgia — including the metro Atlanta region — and are in effect until 11 p.m.

Meteorologists say rainfall amounts could be heavy, especially across parts of the north and central Georgia, where widespread areas of up to 2 inches of rain are expected.

The storm is part of a system that downed trees in and knocked out power in west Alabama.
