(Undated-AP) -- Troup County schools are opening two hours late today after heavy rains flooded roads in the area south of Atlanta. Some two dozen roads are under water this morning. Classes will start late today, with advanced placement tests scheduled for 9:30 a.m.

In Carrollton, stormy weather caused West Georgia University to cancel graduation ceremonies. Meanwhile, two other school systems -- one in west Georgia and one in north Georgia -- are closed because of the wild weather that has rocked the state this week.

Coweta County schools are closed after yesterday's storms brought lightning, tornado warnings, high winds, reports of funnel clouds and heavy rain. Some one-thousand residents -- mostly in the Newnan area -- remain without power this morning. Georgia Power Company hopes to have service restored later this morning.

The National Weather Service says there are no confirmations of tornadoes. In north Georgia, students in Fannin County were sent home yesterday morning because of the threat of flooding that could wash out roads. School will be out today, too, and pre-scheduled staff development day tomorrow will let children stay home until Monday.
