ADAIRSVILLE, Ga.- Authorities say the storm that has slammed a Georgia town has killed at least one person there.

The massive storm system also has been blamed for the death of a man in Tennessee. He had been taking shelter in a shed when a tree toppled onto it, killing him.

Craig Millsap, the fire chief in Georgia's Bartow County, says officials found one person dead in the storm damage. However, he did not have further details about how the person died Wednesday.

The storm did major damage in Adairsville, northwest of Atlanta. Cars were overturned on Interstate 75, forcing officials to close the highway in both directions.

Thousands were without electricity across the Southeast.
