ADAIRSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's fire and insurance commissioner plans to fly over tornado-damaged areas in northwest Georgia Thursday, one day after storms demolished homes in Adairsville and overturned vehicles along nearby Interstate 75.
    
Fire Safety and Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said he plans to assess the damage from the air, beginning with a fly-over in Calhoun Thursday morning.
    
National Weather Service crews will assess storm damage in Gordon County and Bartow County, which is home to Adairsville, forecaster Mike Leary said early Thursday. Crews will also assess damage from possible tornadoes in Floyd, Paulding and Gilmer counties before confirming how many tornadoes struck the state Wednesday, Leary said.
    
About 10 people stayed overnight at a shelter in hard-hit Adairsville, American Red Cross spokesman Ruben Brown said.

    There are a couple of new CAT Bike Stations around Savannah’s downtown area. Maybe you’ve noticed them. Maybe not. The stations are essentially metal bike stands that house a number of rentable bikes. They’re gray in color, the one splash of interest being Savannah’s CAT logo. They don’t exactly shout their presence out to passersby. But the point is for these stations to make it easier for downtown workers, residents and tourists alike to get around town without having to use a car. Fewer c...
