ATLANTA -- A fallen tree knocked out power for 160 Georgia Power customers in northwest Atlanta Monday morning.

The tree fell at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday on Ridgemore Road NW near Moores Mill Road, taking a power pole and some power lines with it.

Part of the tree has since been cut up and removed, but the road is still closed. Georgia Power said crews are working to restore power.

Drivers who usually pass through the area are encouraged to use West Wesley Road as an alternate route.
