And while some neighborhoods had to deal with the flash flooding, others were left in the dark. Crews believe a power pole was struck by lightning, causing some to be without power in Atlanta's Peachtree Hills neighborhood. 11Alive's Joe Ripley was out on the scene. You also see several trees down in the video below. 

In Brookhaven, officials said the Peachtree Creek Greenway is closed until weather conditions improved. In a tweet, they said the park is "off-limits to all except for ducks and geese."

Cherokee County has also seen some storm damage. Cherokee County Fire and Emergency services said the storms caused a couple of lightning strikes that hit two homes. The more serious lightning strike caused an attic fire in one of the homes off Sleepy Hollow Lane. Firefighters were able to get the fire under control, officials said.
