February 4th, 2022 Flash Flooding:

A line of thunderstorms trained across an area between Columbus and LaGrange, resulting in reports of up to 5 inches of rain over a 24-hour period. Flash flooding washed out a road and led to closures of numerous other roads across west-central Georgia. In addition, several rivers south of the Atlanta metro area rose to minor flood stage. Across north Georgia, rainfall totals averaged 2-3 inches during this event.

 

 

February 17th, 2022 Severe Storms:

A Wind Advisory was issued ahead of a line of thunderstorms with strong non-convective winds resulting in numerous trees down around the Rome area. The Rome ASOS reported a wind gust of 62 mph ahead of the line of storms. Despite the storms containing very little lightning, eight Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued for severe winds across parts of northwest Georgia."
