Atlanta Flooding Forces Evacuations

Georgia flooding has forced major evacuations throughout Atlanta and Northern Georgia. Traffic is horrible and it's literally not safe to be on the roads anywhere near the flooded areas. Reports are coming in rapidly and multiple deaths are being reported as a result of the weather. More than a foot of rain fall has come down in the last 24 hours.

"Major flooding in north Georgia has resulted in the death of at least four people, while in the northwest corner of the state, floods are so bad that evacuations are underway.

In metro Atlanta's Gwinnett County, emergency workers found a woman dead in her vehicle after it was swept off a road by flood waters. A man died in Douglas County west of Atlanta when his car was overtaken by a flash flood.

And in Carroll County a 2-year-old boy was found dead in his family's mobile home after it was swept into a creek. "
