Millers Ferry, Sam Hunt Road and Langford Road in Gordon County were all closed early Tuesday morning.
Gordon County Emergency Management Director Richard Cooper said it’s only a matter of time before rivers crest and more roads succumb to flooding.
“Until the rivers go down, you’re not going to see a decrease,” he said. “We’re about to have lots more roads closed, maybe more than we have ever had before.”
The National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued a flood watch for Gordon County and most of Northwest, Ga. on Monday.
Cooper said the flood watch should continue until at least Friday.
“We’re looking at the possibility of minor river flooding and isolated flash flooding,” said Cooper. “We could see anywhere between three and four inches of rain through Wednesday. If it looks bad now, let the water rise a day or two.”
