Storms Continued, with Flooding
A series of storms continued passing through west and north Georgia, which would eventually drop over ten inches of rain (significantly more in some areas) over much of the state. The result was severe flooding in numerous Georgia counties, some even closing interstate highways. Death tolls from the flooding would reach at least nine people. By this date, the flooding was severe in Atlanta and many counties around it, and in west Georgia.
