ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters are warning of high winds with gusts of up to 40 mph across Georgia, part of a winter storm system that damaged several homes in one Georgia county and brought snow and ice to parts of the north Georgia mountains.
Gordon County Chief Deputy Sheriff Robert Paris said several homes near the Calhoun Premium Outlets along Interstate 75 were damaged around 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Gordon County EMA director Richard Cooper tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that 10 homes appeared to be damaged, including one that housed an in-home daycare. No injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service issued a high wind advisory for most of the state through 7 p.m. Wednesday. The advisory covers all of north and central Georgia and much of south Georgia.
