Georgians woke up to tornado warnings and heavy rain Tuesday morning as what’s left of Fred moved through the state. A tornado watch remains in place for several northeast Georgia counties, while DeKalb and Fulton counties are under a flood warning, according to the National Weather Service.
The NWS reported that up to 3 inches of rain had fallen by 8:45 a.m. in metro Atlanta. The heavy rain prompted flash floods on interstates, including I-85 South in Gwinnett County. So far, DeKalb officials have not reported major flooding on any roadway in the county.
