Rain, Rain, Go Away! Rain Continues to Plague Georgia and the Southeast

This time last year, Georgians were praying for rain...literally! And now, we're hoping for some kind of respite from the torrential downpours!

Last summer, our lakes were severely down, strict watering restriction were in place and being patrolled by police, the drought was in full effect.

This morning on 11 Alive, the weatherman reported one to two inches of rain falling per hour. Schools are closed today because of flash flooding - two have been reported dead and one missing child is thought to have been swept away by the rushing water.

Respondents on the 11 Alive website/blog are reporting being trapped in their neighborhoods and homes, with entrances and driveways flooded and surrounded by rushing water. There are videos of kids clinging to trees to avoid being swept away. Not to mention countless homes and basements flooding. This morning's news reported water levels in Cobb County being 2 1/2 feet over flood stage.

Is there an end in sight? According to weather.com, we don't have sunny skies in the forecast until Monday, September 28. Let's hope that, as often is the case, the weather forecasters aren't completely accurate!

Rain, rain, go away!

I am sorry to hear the rain has brought tragedy and flooding. I will pray for it to stop, hopefully it will move towards CA as we desperately need it here.
