Flood watches, warnings continue after heavy rain

MILLEDGEVILLE — Several parts of northwest Georgia remained under a flood watch. Others were under food warnings as rivers and creeks were spilling over their banks.

Soaking rains across the state over the weekend also led to some trees being uprooted, with some power outages resulting. Georgia Power reported that only 420 customers were without power before dawn Monday.

The National Weather Service early Monday said flood warnings continued for several waterways including the Flint River near Woolsey; the Coosa River near Rome; the Oostanaula River near Calhoun; the Armuchee Creek near Armuchee; the Etowah River near east Canton; the Little River near Washington; the Conasauga River near Eton; the Coahulla Creek in the Dalton area; Lookout Creek near New England; West Chickamauga Creek near Fort Oglethorpe; and the Oconee River near Avant Mine.
