North Georgia under flash flood watch

ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters say all of north Georgia will be under a flash flood watch through late Thursday night as heavy rains are again possible in the region.

The flood watch comes a day after rains flooded homes and roads in the north Georgia mountains on Wednesday. It covers several Georgia cities, including Atlanta, Athens, Blairsville, Dalton, LaGrange, Gainesville and Rome.

On Wednesday, some residents were evacuated from their homes in Pickens County, which has been hard-hit by repeated flooding. Residents there and in neighboring Gilmer County were still cleaning up from severe flooding a week ago when more flooding occurred on Wednesday.
