UPDATED: Dangerous Flash Flooding Situation in the Southeast

UPDATED: 2pm EST: A high risk of flash flooding should be taken very seriously. This forecast is valid from now until 6am Tuesday. The area of "high risk" has been extended into northern Georgia, including Atlanta.
41% of flash flood fatalities occur in the rare "high risk" flash flood areas. In addition 90% of the damage occurs in those areas.

Whatever you do, don't drive into floodwaters. If you live in an area prone to flooding, please have a "go kit" ready that you can quickly throw into the car and move to higher ground.
