ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) — A line of strong thunderstorms moving through a large part of north Georgia left scattered power outages early Monday morning.

Georgia Power reported before dawn Monday that fewer than 1,500 customers statewide were without power as the storms continued to push south of metro Atlanta.

Some of the heaviest overnight rains hit Atlanta’s northern suburbs.

Officials say rainfall totals through 5 a.m. Monday were 1.35 inches in Marietta; 1.33 inches in Cartersville; and 1.29 inches in Chamblee.

Officals say that around 2 a.m. Monday, a large oak tree crashed onto a home in Kennesaw where more than a dozen people had gathered for a Father’s Day party. No injuries were reported.

The National Weather Service reported that thunderstorms would be possible early this week across Georgia.
