Big time flood threat for FFC with some pretty scary language being used.
Isloated 8” totals
creeks and rivers overflowing their banks and affecting homes and businesses.
the creeks and rivers will not recess until well after the rain is over.
.FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING...
The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for North and Central Georgia.
* Through Saturday morning
* Additional rounds of very heavy rainfall are likely as a trough of low pressure to the west feeds very high amounts of moisture into the area. Total rainfall amounts through Friday night could range from 2 to 4 inches with isolated amounts up to 8 inches. Much of this heavy rain could fall in a short amount of time. With the heavy rain that has already fallen in the last 2 days, it will only take a relatively small amount of heavy rain to cause significant flash flooding.
* Creeks and rivers will rise out of their banks closing roads or impacting homes, businesses and farms. Roads may become closed for extended periods of time. High water will not recede until well after the rain has ended.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
