Lake Lanier is up BIG TIME for the latest rain event!! Sunday morning it was at a meager 1060.92' and today it is at 1062.42!!! Up a foot and a half. It has been since 2010 since we have seen increases like that! It seemed like the Dam area was main street for heavy rain producing t-storms as they lined up and wend over the same area over and over again. Hall county was under a flash flood warning until earlier this morning and as you can see from the video above, flooding was widespread! That video is from Mitchell Mintz in Lula, GA from before the train of storms set up.
Even the airport saw 2.30 inches of rain in a 36 hour period, but the heaviest rain fell in parts of Gwinnett and Hall last night with the parade of storms. Go to my facebook page and post your rainfall totals and I will use them tonight!
The rest of the week looks drier but there are more changes coming towards the weekend, details later this afternoon in the next blog update.
