Second heavy rain storm pounds Albany

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two pop-up thunderstorms in two days soaked Metro Albany. It's a rare event when we've hardly seen any rain all summer.

Sunday's storm wasn't as strong as the one that rolled through Saturday, but it did bring some heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Some power outages have been reported.

This traffic light was out at Slappey boulevard and Whispering Pines road. One motorcyclist and his family went under a shelter to wait out the storm.

"Two days in a row and we love it. "Even though we suffered through it al little bit, we need the rain."

Saturday night, hundreds of Water Gas and Light customers were without power. Part of Meredyth Drive remains closed after a portion of the road washed away.
