Atlanta Tornado Affects CNN Center

Friday night, a tornado went through downtown Atlanta and damaged many buildings, including CNN Center. Water came through a damaged roof of the atrium of the building, glass shattered inside the atrium as well as the Newsroom. The network moved their National Desk to another location due to a ceiling collapse.

At some points, CNN's Domestic programming was coming from the CNN/I set. As of now World News is airing on CNN/I.

Here at CNN Observations, we planned a trip to the CNN Center on Sunday and I'm not sure if we'll be able to make it due to the damage there. If we are able to make it, we will definitely have more coverage for you in the coming days.

“The CNN Center sustained minor damage to the roof, which was repaired this afternoon,” Richardson said in the letter.

“The food court at CNN Center and the Inside CNN Studio Tour will reopen on Monday,”

Well, scratch that! Now Veronica De La Cruz just reported it might not be open until Wednesday.

Oh, good thing that they have recovered from that disaster, since that is their headquarters in Georgia. Hmm, now we know why there was no breaking news when the tornado whitewashed Atlanta. It was because your cameras were damaged, too.
