Heavy rains make for a flooded, soggy weekend

Flooding in Westwood heights in Rincon Flooding in Westwood heights in Rincon

So far Saturday has turned out to be rather troubling for many who live along Coastal Georgia. Heavy rains and thundershowers have dumped water at various spots across the area, causing flooding and standing water problems.

  The most serious of these appears to be in Screven County, where it is expected that a dam could burst at any time in the next 24 hours. If it does, that will mean thousands of gallons of water will suddenly flood areas which are usually relatively dry. Authorities in Screven county have already suggested that some residents may want to evacuate their homes. At the time of this writing, the dam remains rather full but has not burst just yet. WSAV will keep you updated on the situation. In areas close to Savannah the flood water has proved rather inconvenient. In places like Rincon and Port Wentworth, flood waters rose to two and three feet; high enough to flood cars, enter homes and cause other similar problems. Everyone is looking forward to the rain slacking off over the next several days. Stay with WSAV News 3 and WSAV.com for the very latest on the weather and the flooding situation.
