At 440 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with torrential
rainfall along a line extending from 10 miles southwest of Seneca
South Carolina, to 7 miles southeast of Dahlonega Georgia, and
moving southeast at 15 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Toccoa, Carnesville, Cornelia, Baldwin, Reed Creek, Lavonia, Gumlog,
Mount Airy, Alto and Bowersville.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph, half inch hail and torrential rainfall rates
up to 3 inches per hour will be possible in these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

The combination of gusty winds and saturated soil conditions will
cause scattered trees and power lines to fall. Seek shelter inside an
interior room.

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters. Do not drive across
flooded roads.
