ATLANTA — Forecasters are warning of rivers and creeks flooding as the latest round of showers and storms dropped large amounts of rain -- in some cases more than 4 inches.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings for numerous tributaries in the state. They include the Suwanee, Peachtree and Nancy creeks and the Yellow River in metro Atlanta; the Middle Oconee River in Barrow and Jackson counties; and the Oconee River in Clarke, Greene and Oconee counties.

In southwest Georgia, weather stations by late Sunday night had recorded 4.8 inches of rain in Calhoun County; and 3.7 inches in Baker County.

Forecasters also warned that large amounts of debris such as fallen leaves and small tree limbs could clog drains, adding to the flood concerns.
