I am one of the approximately one million people in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area who has no electrical power due to Tropical Storm Zeta — and the photograph shown above shows the culprit, which is a downed power line due to a part of a tree that fell overnight during the storm.

Additionally, at least three people have already died in the state of Georgia.

Hurricane Zeta became the eleventh landfall of a named tropical system in the United States within one year, which is a new record.

In the meantime, I intend to write an article with more information and photographs pertaining to my experience with Tropical Storm Zeta.
