Paulk-Buchanan said only one home was damaged in Pickens County.
Where the damage was done, neighbors pitched in to help residents affected by the floods with clean-up.
Some residents have to worry about the cleanliness of their drinking and washing water, officials said.
A water advisory went was issued around 3 p.m. Friday for the fewer than 200 Gilmer County residents living near Clear Creek and Turkey Creek who use well water, Paulk-Buchanan said.
“If they think their well water may have been contaminated, they should switch to bottled water until the well is tested,” Paulk-Buchanan said.
“This is not the whole county. Just well water where (flood) water came up and may have contaminated their well and ground water. It’s very isolated, but still a health issue.”
Residents believing their well was contaminated should only drink and cook with bottled water and call Gilmer County Emergency Management at 706-276-7246.
In Pickens County, a boil advisory issued late Thursday was suspended, Paulk-Buchanan said.
GEMA and Gilmer County officials are asking for donations of cleaning supplies, including bleach, buckets, mops, disposable gloves and trash bags; building supplies like two-by-fours, tarps, drywall, and sheetrock; and personal hygiene items such as baby wipes, small first-aid kits and mosquito repellent.
Anyone looking to help can call 706-276-7246 or send donations to 1162 Progress Road, Ellijay, GA 30540.
