Tornado hits Downtown Atlanta

Yeah, I'm not the news - I'm just watching it. I'm hardly the first or only guy "covering" the tornado, but I'm doing it, so you might as well read it. FUNNN

A supposed tornado hit Atlanta tonight.

You can see pictures here

From the video I've been watching and Twittering about:

CNN Center's atrium / food court is blown apart. Half the windows in the building are blown out, as are windows at the Ritz Carlton and the Omni Hotel.

The Georgia Dome has roof damage, scoreboards and other fixutres are dangling from the ceiling.

The Georgia World Congress Center is flooding as water pours off the streets down the new stairway that was just opened a few weeks ago.

Georgia State University is a total mess, dumpsters are stacked in a pile in the middle of Courtland and several buildings have blown out windows.

There are cars scattered across the streets and trees down all over the place.

The old Cotton Mill Lofts (the ones that caught on fire a few years ago and the guy was stuck on the crane for 4 hours in all that heat) now have no roof.

I'll update more as other crap makes itself apparent.
