ATLANTA -- Power crews, police and firefighters scrambled overnight on Sunday to respond to a series of emergency calls about flooding, fallen trees and power outages after three days of steady rain.

One car stalled out on the entrance ramp to I-285 at Jonesboro Road after the driver tried to go through high water.

In DeKalb County, firefighters requested help from Georgia Power after a transformer caught on fire at Oak Forest Drive and Ashwoody Trail just South of I-285.

Crews with 11Alive News found trees down on Cahaba Drive, Harwell Road, Rock Springs Road NE and Charlotte Place NW in Atlanta.

Atlanta firefighters and police responded to a tree down on the road at Peachtree Battle Avenue and Old Field Road. The tree brought down a power line.

Another tree fell early Sunday at 529 Gresham Avenue SE near Glenwood.

In Marietta, crews responded to a tree across the road on Polk Street.

Georgia Power sent out this Tweet late Saturday night: "Today's rains have left heavy, wet trees in soggy ground. A wind gust can bring them down."

At last report, 2100 Georgia Power customers were without service, with 1400 of them in metro Atlanta.

Peachtree Creek in Buckhead remained several feet below flood stage early Sunday, but there was ponding on nearby Northside Drive.

The National Weather Services reports Big Creek is now above flood stage in South Forsyth County and continuing to rise, causing minor flooding.

The Big Creek Greenway is closed with up to four feet of water in some areas.

The NWS has also issued a flood warning for Suwanee Creek near Suwanee from Sunday morning until Monday morning.

Areas behind Suwanee Elementary School and George Pierce Park could flood.
