Oconee, Other North Georgia Counties Under Flash Flood Watch

Heavy rainfall is expected overnight and throughout Monday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for much of north Georgia, including Oconee and Clarke counties, that is in effect through 1 p.m. Monday.

Officials warn heavy rain may lead to instances of flash flooding, especially in poorly drained locations.

According to the NWS forecast, between three-quarters of an inch and an inch or new rainfall was expected overnight, and an additional half inch is likely on Monday. Some storms could also produce high winds.

People in the affected area should monitor forecasts and be prepared to take action in the event a Flash Flood Warning is issued, which means a flash flood is imminent or actually occurring.
