ATLANTA (AP) - The National Weather Service says flood warnings remain in effect in north Georgia, mainly from runoff following two days of rain that dumped from 3 to 7 inches across the area.

Meteorologist Laura Griffith at the Weather Service in Peachtree
City says another system will move into north Georgia over the
weekend, but said it will be nothing like the rainfall in the
48-hour period Tuesday and Wednesday.

Griffith says the highest rain total was 7 inches at Hammond,
west of Rome near the Alabama-Georgia line.

The Weather Service says minor to moderate flooding will
continue to occur on some rivers and streams into Friday.

The Coosa River six miles southwest of Rome was just below the
moderate flood stage of 28 feet with a 27.6-foot reading early
Thursday morning.
