APD asks Atlantans to stay away from Cabbagetown

(3:10 p.m.) Major Renee Propes, commander of APD Zone 6, which includes Candler Park, Inman Park, Kirkwood, Reynoldstown and Cabbagetown, has issued an urgent plea for residents to stay away from the Cabbagetown community, which was heavily damaged in last night's tornado. "We appreciate the fact that people may want to help," Major Propes said. "But, in most instances, they are hindering our efforts and possibly putting people and property at risk."

Additionally, Major Propes warned that new weather systems have developed west of Atlanta and urged people to remain close to their homes or in safe places.

New severe weather cells currently in Alabama are expected to his Atlanta within the next few hours.
