Atlanta Weather | Tree takes down power lines on Cascade Road



ATLANTA - Both lanes of Cascade Road were blocked after a large tree fell early Monday morning.

The tree fell near the intersection with Milano Drive, taking down power lines. The road reopened just after 8 a.m.

Neighbors told Channel 2's Richard Elliot the tree has been dead for a while.

Georgia Power said about 170 people remain without power while crews make repairs.

Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said the cold front that brought showers overnight is expected to move out around 7 a.m., paving the way for a sunny afternoon.

Temperatures will reach the upper 60s in metro Atlanta, with cooler air filtering in by the early afternoon.
