Flooding Targeting the South

Strong storms and flooding will threaten the Southeast through Saturday as a powerful storm system pushes eastward.

Areas from eastern Texas through South Carolina will have 1 to 2 inches of rain, which will swell creeks and rivers across the Deep South.

Some areas of Georgia and South Carolina are already experiencing flooding, and additional rain could make the problem even worse.

As this system moves eastward, some areas of Louisiana and Mississippi could also get strong storms capable of damaging wind gusts.

As these storms develop, travel across roadways and interstates, including I-95, I-10, and I-20, could become delayed from downed trees and ponding.
