WESTERN BARROW...CENTRAL DEKALB...WESTERN MORGAN...WESTERN PUTNAM... GWINNETT...WALTON...JONES...JASPER AND NEWTON COUNTIES... At 516 AM EDT, Doppler radar estimates and river gages indicated that the risk of flooding over the area remained high. Since last night, 3 to 4 inches have fallen, with locally higher amounts. An additional up to 0.5 inches are possible over eastern Morgan, Putnam and Jones counties. Excessive runoff from the high rainfall rates continues to drain into river basins, and rises of area creeks and rivers are still possible. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you can do so safely. && LAT...LON 3410 8387 3413 8382 3392 8362 3389 8363 3381 8351 3315 8342 3292 8336 3284 8351 3292 8370 3338 8386 3348 8395 3350 8404 3354 8405 3365 8419 3396 8427 3400 8424 3399 8419 3405 8410 3409 8411 3417 8406 $$
