Georgia Flooding Photos



It is not every day a major Interstate highway gets closed by flooding in Georgia. Interstate 20 was closed west of Atlanta for around two days because of Sweetwater Creek flowing over it.

Marcia, as a Georgia citizen, it's nice to see our state getting attention. We're all sorry that it's because of a natural disaster! We are northeast of Atlanta and, while we got LOTS of rain, we didn't have flooding problems. We were actually able to see the value of a reservoir as a protection against flood waters. Lake Sidney Lanier is a reservoir that protected Hall County/Gainesville and Forsyth County/Cumming from the flooding that affected other parts of the Metro Atlanta area. It might be exceptionally eye-catching to show students the photos of Six Flags over Georgia - it's just west of Atlanta in the most Flood-Ravaged area.
