Atlanta streets being closed

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta police are closing some downtown streets as stormy weather moves into the city because of the possibility of falling glass and debris from tornado-damaged buildings.

Police are restricting pedestrian and vehicle access to Peachtree Street between Harris and Ellis streets, Spring Street between Marietta and Harris streets and Andrew Young International Boulevard between Peachtree Center and Williams Street.

A tornado ripped through the city's downtown Friday night, knocking out hundreds of windows, scattering debris across Atlanta's core and sending trees crashing into homes in nearby neighborhoods. At least 27 people were injured in the storm.
