Flooding issues remain across Cherokee County as we’ve received between three and four inches of rain over the last 12 hours.
The Weiss Lake level is currently standing at the mark of 568.35 feet (as of 3:00 pm) Thursday.
A “Flood Warning” has been extended for the Coosa River at Weiss Dam, and Gadsden – affecting Cherokee, Etowah, Calhoun and St. Clair Counties.
Due to recent heavy rainfall there could be trouble spots around Cherokee County as you travel today, watch for water standing in the roadway or flowing across the road; there is also a possibility for encountering downed trees due to the saturated ground and high winds.
Cherokee County Engineer Corey Chambers said that County Roads 144, 535, 962, 730 and 600 all have water over them.
Remember if you encounter a flooded road – don’t try to drive through the water – as the saying goes – “Turn Around – Don’t Drown.”
