Roads and parks were submerged in Grovetown, a city in the Augusta, Georgia, metro area on Thursday, September 17, after severe rainfall from storm Sally inundated the region.
Sally made landfall in Alabama as a Category 2 hurricane in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The storm has downed trees, flooded roads, and cut power for communities across the South, including in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.
As of Thursday morning, the storm had weakened to a post-tropical cyclone and was bringing “torrential” rainfall to the Carolinas, the National Hurricane Center said.
