Alabama is playing Mississippi State in Atlanta tonight in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament.

A powerful storm is moving over the city of Atlanta and has caused officials to clear the floor and move the players into the locker rooms.

Light standards were moving and a loud roaring sound was heard.

Some debris was seen falling inside the dome.

There was some temporary panic, but security officers quickly handled the situation and it looks like there does not look to be injuries.

The Georgia Dome has a suspended roof. There is some visible damage to the roof in the corner.

A tornado warning has been in effect for Fulton County since 9:30 p.m. EDT. It goes until 10 p.m.
