Donalsonville - Heavy rains flood more than 300 homes and businesses in three South Georgia counties. Governor Barnes declared a State of Emergency for Seminole, Decatur, and Miller counties.

More than 14 inches of rain has fallen in Donalsonville since midnight on Sunday, the area hardest hit by what was Tropical Storm Hanna. The Georgia Emergency Management Agency surveyed damage in Seminole, Miller, and Decatur counties.

Hundreds of homes and businesses were flooded, causing thousand of dollars worth of damage. The storm knocked out power for about 2,000 customers in Southwest Georgia. Most of those people now have their power restored.

About 250 homes were flooded in Seminole County, and between 50-75 businesses were damaged. 34 homes were flooded in Miller County and two churches and three businesses were damaged.

No injuries were reported in Seminole County. Only one minor injury was reported in Miller County.
