Deadly Winds Tear Across Georgia


February 23, 2010 — Two people were killed after damaging winds swept across the capital of Georgia.

Powerful winds tore across the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on Monday, killing at least two people.

One died after a massive tree fell on the car he was driving.

The winds also brought down power-lines and tore roofs off houses. The city emergency services received more than 600 calls reporting damage.

Fire fighters and emergency workers spent much of the day trying to clear debris from roads and homes. They also had to remove dozens of trees that had collapsed onto buildings.

The National Weather Service is expecting the strong winds to continue over the next couple of days.
