Flooding reported in Columbia County

Several areas of Columbia County experienced flooding after 3.6 inches rain fell from 7 a.m. Wednesday morning to today.

Columbia County Emergency Management Director Pam Tucker said residents near the 300 block of Kings Bridge Road reported flooding in their homes. A creek flooded Wendell Way and a woman was trapped in a flooding vehicle in the Arrowwood Trailer Park at 4477 Wrightsboro Road.

Most of the precipitation fell this morning when a storm system stalled and dumped heavy rain on the area for several hours, Ms. Tucker said.

Emergency crews responded to assist with the reports of flooding, as well as a fallen tree near Morehead Drive and Columbia Road. There have been no injuries in any of the incidents.
