South Georgia counties get several inches of rain

August 11, 2004

Shellman- The rain we're expecting Thursday from Tropical Storm Bonnie will fall on already saturated ground.

Five to ten inches of rain fell today when storms stalled over Randolph County. Streams rose and there were minor problems with water running over Lower Shellman Road.

If more heavy rain falls Thursday, some roads could have to be closed.

"Because it starts raining and it continues to rain, the fields are going to flood and it's going to go across the roads and we'll have some problems down there," said Sheriff Gary Yochum.

He also warned people to be careful driving in the morning. You need to look out for wet patches.
