The areas of Cave Spring Road, Prior and Philpot streets, Highland Avenue and the north end of College Street were hit pretty hard in Cedartown, while on the east side of the county, Callaway Estates, Forrest North Subdivision, Pearl Street and areas near Piedmont Avenue suffered damage in Rockmart.
The latest word from officials is that straight line winds, not tornadoes, caused the damage.
For the Collier family, it made no difference as to what caused the damage on Cave Spring Road, they were just in a hurry to clean it up Tuesday morning.
A half-dozen relatives were on hand at Terry Collier's house helping to clear the driveway where two large trees had crashed across the night before. "We're just cleaning up this mess," said Terry's daughter, Dawn Sanford. "In times of need, our family comes through. That's what we're about."
Across town in Rockmart, later in the afternoon, the Bradford Pear blossoms twirled their way to the ground as Randy Jones sawed up a large pine tree that fell across Ronald Lovell's back yard. Lovell lives on Oak Hill Drive in the Forrest North subdivision.
"This tree came down, and we had another one, a smaller one, snapp off and fall. Just missed my house. It clipped the gutter, but that was all. It could have been a lot worse. A lot worse," Lovell said shaking his head.
Georgia Power crews could be seen from one end of the county to the other, fervently working to restore power. Four bucket trucks were on Philpot Street Tuesday afternoon, trying to restore power to the 200 block of Main Street. Power has been out for those businesses since 5:30 Monday evening.
Thousands of Georgia Power customers in Northwest Georgia remain without electricity as crews continue to work to clear storm damage from Monday night's volatile weather system.
Georgia Power spokesperson Brian Green said approximately 9,000 customers remain without power and that doesn't include those on local municipal systems. The Northwest Georgia area includes Polk, Haralson, Floyd, Bartow, and Carroll Counties.
He said the last update is that everyone should have their power restored by midnight.
The numbers break down with Cedartown the hardest hit with 5,000 residents still without power. Next is Rome with 3,177 people without power followed by Carrollton with 970 residents without electricity. Summerville has 834 residents without power and there is a pocketful of people, around 13 residents, without electricity in Cartersville, according to Green.
