Trees and branches were down around Decatur, but no injuries were immediately reported Wednesday night after a storm blew through.
A giant branch took out power lines on Pinehurst Street at Winn Way, knocking out power to several homes. One family told Decaturish they were waiting inside for rescuers to check downed power lines outside the home. They reported later Georgia Power had arrived and shut off the power.
A tree came down in the 300 block of Lockwood Terrace in the Decatur Heights neighborhood, blocking the road. A couple at the residence where the tree originated said no one was hurt and their home was not damaged when the tree came down. The tree had crushed a flower pot.
Police put up tape blocking off downed branches along Sycamore Drive and on Grove Street in the Decatur Heights neighborhood.
A Decatur police operator said no injuries were reported. More than 650 customers in DeKalb County were affected by outages related to the storm, according to Georgia Power.

Decaturish reader Neha Patel sent in these photos. She said, “Looks like the east side took a beating. We lost (a tree) too over here on Glenn Street. Good times (not really) but no one hurt. This is our second large oak in so many years. Lucky our trees MO’s are all the same: fall just close enough to annoyingly damage the house, some new grass, and bit ‘o new driveway (cause why not go for a trifecta) while also making you count your blessings.”
