Weather makes for Morning Traffic Troubles

Flooding on MLK Blvd. at Victory Dr. Flooding on MLK Blvd. at Victory Dr.

Thursday morning's heavy rain and thunderstorms brought a number of traffic concerns with them.

The hardest rain came early in morning around three a.m. The blinding rain made it difficult for early morning drivers who were traveling the main highways and city streets. Flood waters in downtown Savannah were also a real concern. There was a laundry list of troubles because of the weather this morning including:

-There was a traffic light out on Hwy 80 and Chatham Parkway

-There was an accident on Pine Barren at Rogers

-There accidents took place on Hwy 21 at I-95

-There was another accident at Hilton Head 278 at Wilborn

- a Crash at 1-16 at Dean Forest Road

-Hwy 80 in Brooklet at Mud Road is totally blocked with a semi truck crash

And of course there were Savannah's infamous flooded streets. Some of the hardest hit areas were MLK Boulevard at Victory Drive, Victory Drive at Waters Avenue, some of he residential areas in and around Ardsley park were also flooded. The late morning brought warmer temperatures and receding waters. Still, it's good to remember that whenever you encounter unusual standing water on the road, it's best to play it safe and drive around it if possible, especially if the area has been roped off by authorities.
