They don't OFFICIALLY know. My guess is a microburst.<br><br>
Some hotels got their windows blown out.<br><br>
Guess we'll know for sure when daylight hits.

I'm watching CNN....quite a mess down there....lots of debris, trees down, broken glass, some injuries...may have a hard time getting traffic through the mess so all those people down there for basketball may be stuck....

It was downtown around the World Congress Ctr/ CNN center. I don't think any KR's are in that area. Reports of hail in other areas and sighting of a funnel cloud before the damage happened downtown. Just eyewitness stuff, though.

Wow.<br><br>
This is not something that hits Atlanta often. (I've lived in metro- my whole life and have never seen a tornado, though I've heard of them hitting other parts of GA, and warnings) I hope everyone will be okay... 9 injured, but none dead? I hope it stays that way. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Everything is fine in Tucker. We had some big booms and lights flickered off around 9:45 but other that nothing serious. I've already walked around the neighborhood and no houses appear to be damaged.<br><br>
Downtown Atlanta, including Centennial Park where the Georgia Marathon starts and finishes is in pretty bad shape. The remaining games of the SEC basketball tournament are being moved to Georgia Tech, although no fans will be allowed in - a decision by the SEC. The games will be on TV.<br><br>
A few condo's were severely damaged in Southeast Atlanta but there are no reports of deaths or serious injuries during the storm, which is pretty amazing.<br><br>
I don't think the storm will affect the start/finish areas of the marathon as they have two weeks to get things cleaned up. The complete cleanup will probably take quite a while longer.
