The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flood Advisory for Minor Flooding in...
  Candler County in southeastern Georgia...

* Until 700 PM EDT

* At 604 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
  thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding. Overflowing poor
  drainage areas will result in minor flooding in the advisory area.
  Two to three inches of rain have fallen from Metter north to
  Olifftown.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Metter, Pulaski and Aline.

Additional rainfall of one to two inches is expected over the area,
with the greatest rainfall rates expected near Aline. This
additional rain will result in minor flooding of low lying and poor
drainage areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing, find
another route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice, turn around, don`t drown.
