Three days after Hurricane and then Tropical Storm Irma hit Georgia with winds strong enough to blow over oak, elm and pine trees. Over 50 thousand customers in DeKalb and 37 thousand in Fulton County are still without power. DeKalb schools remain closed. One woman died on Monday when a tree fell on her car. One man died after officials say in the absence of power, a candle burning may have caused the fatal fire.

Here is a list of streets that are still closed while Georgia Power crews work to clear trees from power lines.

If you need to report a tree down in your neighborhood in DeKalb County you can call 404-294-2911. In Fulton County you can report downed trees at 404-613-3108. Georgia Power officials say 95% of all power should be restored by Sunday.  Georgia Power crews are working around the clock to restore power in DeKalb, Rockdale and Fulton Counties.
