Heavy rain, strong winds from remnants of Ida cause damage throughout metro Atlanta

Here's a look at some of the damage.

ATLANTA — The 11Alive StormTrackers made sure to keep a close eye on severe weather as the remnants of Ida caused storms and brought strong wind through the metro Atlanta area Tuesday.

With our area on the right side of the Tropical Depression track, rain bands rotating around the storm brought heavy rain and the potential for isolated spin-up tornadoes to North Georgia. Rain totals were expected to be 2 to 5 inches across parts of North Georgia. 

11Alive tracked the weather developments from Tuesday below.
