The Portland Trail Blazers’ week started with a startling Tornado evacuation in Atlanta. In the early Monday hours, a tornado touched down west of downtown Atlanta, forcing the Trail Blazers to head for the approved shelter in their current hotel.
The Blazers’ social media account shared a handful of pictures from the evacuation shortly after the events unfolded.
