ATLANTA—Strong storms that moved through Georgia caused at least two injuries from flying glass and damaged several homes and businesses, mostly in the northwestern part of the state.

Georgia Power estimated that more than 19,000 customers had lost electricity early Thursday evening.

A spokeswoman says about two-thirds of the outages in the state were in the Rome area that was hit hard by winds that blew down trees. Emergency management officials say several businesses had windows blown out.

Davis said utility crews were en route to restore lost power.

Most of the damage was from fallen trees.
