ATLANTA (AP) — There were reports of several homes damaged in central Georgia and trees toppled across north Georgia after a fast-moving line of thunderstorms brought high winds to the region.

The Courier Herald in Dublin reports that more than 50 homes in northern Laurens County were impacted by a storm Friday, with debris scattered across yards and on rooftops. There were no immediate reports of injuries there.

Preliminary reports to the National Weather Service indicate that several trees were down on U.S. Highway 11 in Dade County Friday morning, after the line of storms rolled through the state’s northwest corner.

In Floyd County, there were reports of several power lines down.

In Cobb County, there were many reports of toppled trees. A 58 mph wind gust was reported at Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta.
