2 Dead in Ga. Weekend Storms

ATLANTA (AP) _ Authorities have identified two people killed as
tornadoes tore through Georgia.

Laurens County Coroner Richard Stanley III identified the man who died there as Tracey Clements, who was in his 40s. His wife was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia in Macon in critical condition. Their two grandchildren were treated for minor injuries and released
yesterday.

The second death occurred in metro Atlanta later Sunday afternoon, where the Gwinnett County Fire Department said a 19-year-old woman died after the top of a tree snapped in gusty winds and fell on her.

Fire Department spokesman Captain Thomas Rutledge says the woman
was dead at the scene when firefighters arrived at the Chatelaine Park Apartments in Duluth at 4:47 p.m. yesterday. Ted Bailey with the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner's Office identifies her as Astrid Hidalgo.
