ATLANTA -- Heavy rains and winds in Georgia interfered with Macon's Cherry Blossom Festival and caused a tree to fall on a truck and vacant apartment building in Atlanta.

Atlanta police said no one was injured when the huge oak fell about 12:30 p.m. Sunday on 13th Street.

In Macon, officials with the Cherry Blossom Festival said heavy rains forced the cancellation of activities Sunday afternoon at Central City Park, but music events and fireworks were still planned Sunday night at Wesleyan College.

DeKalb County firefighters said a lightning strike started a home fire Saturday night. No one was injured.
