    I had just stepped out of Home Depot on Piedmont rd when I saw thick black smoke coming from behind the store. It was really bad. I watched the whole thing on my phone on my way home. Traffic is going to be a nightmare. Atlanta already has band traffic and this is going to be just indescribable.

    Driving towards smoke isn’t a wise idea…..those motorists especially the one who said they couldn’t see anything must’ve had a genius moment. Naija people will make a u turn and face the on coming traffic. Be safe Atlanta!

    As if the traffic jam on I85 isn’t bad enough smh. May God help us all. I can just imagine the craziness going on when it happened with all lanes closed up & others are trying to take another route.
