DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

The rain, ice, flurries and snow moved out of Georgia by mid-morning Wednesday taking the clouds with it, but leaving behind strong, gusty wind and a bitter cold.

The FOX 5 Storm Team expected the winds to topple trees and cause some isolated power outages, not to mention block roads and cause damage to homes.

SKYFOX 5 flew over a home near Burlington and North Decatur roads in DeKalb County. They spotted a tree that fell on a two-story home. Luckily, there wasn't much damage to the home, but that can't be said for the crushed sedan parked below.

The homeowner tells FOX 5's Deidra Dukes that no one was injured when the tree fell. They are still assessing the damages.
