PostSubject: FLOOD WARNING!!!!   Sat Aug 23, 2008 11:10 am

National Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WARNING for most of Southwest Georgia, Note this is a WARNING

* FLOOD WARNING FOR..... BERRIEN COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... BROOKS COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... COLQUITT COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... COOK COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... LANIER COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... LOWNDES COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... THOMAS COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... TIFT COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... WORTH COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA... BAKER COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... DECATUR COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... EARLY COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... GRADY COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... MILLER COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... MITCHELL COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA... SEMINOLE COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST GEORGIA...

* UNTIL 400 PM EDT SATURDAY

* NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR CONTINUES TO INDICATED IMPRESSIVE RAINBANDS WRAPPING AROUND THE EAST SIDE OF TROPICAL STORM FAY INTO THE FLORIDA BIG BEND AND PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA. THESE RAINBANDS ARE PRODUCING VERY HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA. THESE STORMS ARE PRODUCING RAINFALL RATES OF 1 TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR... WITH TOTAL STORM ACCUMULATIONS OF 8 INCHES OR MORE POSSIBLE.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM THESE STORMS WILL CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...URBAN AREAS...HIGHWAYS... STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS OTHER DRAINAGE AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.

KEEP IN MIND THAT SOME OF THE HEAVIER RAIN WAS FALLING OVER ALREADY SATURATED GROUND. THIS WILL CAUSE CONTINUED FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS...SUCH AS SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS. THE WET GROUND WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR ADDITIONAL TREES TO FALL IN GUSTY WINDS BETWEEN 30 AND 40 MPH.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS SAFELY. IT ONLY TAKES A FOOT OF WATER TO SWEEP MOST CARS AWAY. TURN AROUND! DON'T DROWN!

Coming home today there were a few places where it got a bit slippery, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I have appreciated the rain because it has refilled some of the low ponds around. Plus my yard looks fantastic.Smile
