WSFA 12 News Chief Meteorologist Rich Thomas says the kind of flooding our area saw is regular overflow of low lying areas such as pasture lands and some secondary roads. None of the flooding situations forced any kind of significant evacuations.
Autauga County Emergency Management Agency officials also asked Autaugaville residents along the Alabama River to be aware of the potential for flooding. A voluntary evacuation was issued Monday.
Alabama Power said Tuesday the rain caused lake levels to rise at some of its reservoirs. It will continue to have the spillway gates open at its Weiss, Henry, Logan Martin, Lay, Mitchell and Jordan dams on the Coosa River, and Harris and Martin dams on the Tallapoosa River over the next few days.
