Flash Flood and Tornado Watches Issued in the Southeast US

Wet weather continues in parts of the southeastern US with numerous showers and storms. As a result, flash flood watches are in effect for central and northern Georgia, most of Alabama, and Florida’s coastal panhandle Wednesday into early Thursday morning. 

Alabama will see about 1-2 inches of rain, while some areas have already received 2-6 inches the past few days. As a result, these areas will be more prone to flooding since the ground is already saturated. 

In addition to heavy rain and flash flooding, parts of Alabama are under a Tornado Watch. 

The following counties in Alabama should prepare for isolated tornadoes, hail, and wind gusts: 

  • Blount
  • Calhoun
  • Cherokee
  • Clay
  • Cleburne
  • Cullman
  • Dekalb
  • Etowah Jackson
  • Jefferson
  •  Limestone
  • Madison
  • Marshall
  •  Morgan
  • Randolph
  • Shelby
  • St Clair
  • Talladega
