Chattooga County EMA Director Eddie Henderson has been monitoring the weather system that has caused so much trouble across Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee for the past two days and says that Chattooga County could be in for some severe weather, and will definently see a lot of rainfall.
Henderson participated in a web meeting with the National Weather Service on Sunday afternoon and says that we can expect thunderstorms, some severe, after midnight tonight and continuing into Monday. For Sunday night there is a slight risk of severe weather with damaging winds and possible tornados.
Henderson said that the National Weather Service is concerned about this, but they are even more concerned about the amount of rainfall that is headed our way. Chattooga County and Northwest Georgia remains under a Flash Flood Watch. Henderson said "don’t be surprised by a thunderstorm watch or even a tornado watch. The risk of this will shift southward as the day goes on Monday."
We can expect at least 2-4 inches of rain from this system that has caused record flooding already across the Mid-South.
