Georgia Weather History for September 21st

In 2009, a historical, record, and catastrophic flood event occurred across portions of west central and northwest Georgia. Up to 20 inches of rain fell in some places and this, on top of saturated ground resulted in some of the worst flooding ever reported in the Atlanta and north Georgia area. Eleven deaths were recorded during the event, mostly vehicle related deaths at night from washed out bridges and roads as a result of swollen creeks. Property damages were estimated to be at least $0.5 billion, with hundreds of homes and businesses destroyed by flood waters.
