They reported multiple storms that may produce between 1 to 2 inches of rain within a one-hour period, with isolated areas seeing around 3 inches. The storms were moving north at 5 mile per hour, and are expected to cause minor flooding.

The National Weather Service reported that around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, the Etowah River was still above flood stage, but water levels were falling.

The weather service issued a flash flood watch for Cherokee County that will last “through late tonight.”

The National Weather Service reported that scattered periods of heavy rain are likely across north and central Georgia, and said there may be up to another inch of rain through Friday.

Due to saturated soil, there is a potential for trees fall and mud slides to occur in steeper terrain, the National Weather Service reported.
