And it continues. I've been hearing all over the twittersphere that theres really quite heavy flooding all over the metro area -- schools are closed or opening late, people staying home from work. One woman last night was swept off the road in her minivan and drowned, I think in gwinett county.

Entire City Of Trion, Ga. Evacuated On Levee Fears
[Q]



TRION, Ga. (AP) -- Crews are working furiously to shore up a levee along the Chattooga River that is in danger of failing.
[Q]



Chattooga County officials say the rising waters forced them to evacuate hundreds of residents of the town of Trion, which sits near the levee.
[Q]



Chattooga County Emergency Management Agency Director Lamar Canada says water is about a foot from the top of the levee and the river's level is rising fast.
[Q]



He says "it's a grave situation for us -- it's the first time it's happened in more than a decade."
[Q]



Red Cross officials are setting up an emergency shelter for as many as 300 people at a nearby shelter. Volunteers say they have already helped about 40 victims.
[Q]



The county sits in northwest Georgia, near the border with Tennessee and Alabama.

Just got home! I almost started crying. I get onto Buford Hwy, and I notice everyone is moving out of the right hand lane. There is a car stopped in a giant puddle. So I move to the left, but I notice the water is still pretty high. So I wait for the car in front of me to make it through and gun it. The whole time saying, "please make it. please make it. please make it." Seriously what the fuck are you suppose to do in that situation? It's a one way road with walls on either side.
