The storm that blew through the western portion of Gwinnett County caused downed trees and power outages to several areas of Peachtree Corners Tuesday night.
Captain Tommy Rutledge, spokesman for Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Service said when fire crews arrived to the area shortly after 7 p.m. firefighters found "access streets blocked to the Spalding Corners subdivision off Spalding Drive." There were also "several other reports of wires and trees down in the surrounding community."
Rutledge said there were a number of streets blocked due to downed trees including Heathwood, Sunflower, Rosecommon, and Frank Neely.
"Firefighters were able to cut trees from the roadway in order to gain access to the back part of the neighborhood and other areas to check for further damage," said Rutledge. "There were widespread power outages reported in the immediate area."
Rutledge said there were no reports of major damage to any homes and no injuries reported.
"Based on the magnitude of the storm, we are extremely fortunate that there were no reports of injury or major damage," said Rutledge.
A storm thundered through Peachtree Corners Tuesday evening causing trees to fall and some residents lost power as a storm with strong winds, thunder and lightening passed through the area around 7 p.m.
Gwinnett firefighters answered calls from residents who reported "numerous trees down and power lines down," said Captain Tommy Rutledge, spokesman for the Gwinnett Fire and Rescue Services.
"A severe storm passed through the western point of the county," said Rutledge who said when the fire department arrived firefighters found "tree limbs down and a huge tree had fallen across the road of Spalding Drive in the Spalding Corners subdivision.
"We found a tree had fallen onto a front porch of one home," said Rutledge. "But fortunately there are no injuries or structural damages to any of the homes."
Rutledge said the fire department is working with the power company and a tree service company to restore power and get the trees removed. He said the storm started a house fire in the Suwanee area, but no storm-related fires were reported in Peachtree Corners.
