Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns and Meteorologist Brad Nitz tracked the storms throughout the afternoon on Channel 2 Action News.

The storms included intense cloud-to-ground lightning, heavy rain and even hail at times.

A Flash Flood Warning was in effect for parts of DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties but it has since been discontinued.

A Channel 2 Action News viewer caught one storm on video and said it looked like a weak tornado that blew across I-75 near Cumberland Mall. Nitz said radar data supports what the video showed at that location.

Another viewer sent us a photo from Lake Lanier where the storms ripped the roof off of part of a marina there.

The storms left trees and power lines down across parts of the metro and caused flooding with the large amount of rain they dumped.

At one point, the heavy rain also caused part of GA 400 to flood just ahead of the afternoon rush hour.

Drier air is now moving in behind the front that brought all the storms.
