At least three people died as a result of the storm, including a Dunwoody man killed when a tree fell on his house as he slept and a Forsyth County woman killed when a tree fell on her car. “All things considered, I’m just thankful no one got hurt,” said Dunwoody resident Ken Burnett as he surveyed damage from a 60-foot sweet gum...
