Heavy rain triggers flash flood watch with wind advisory

As showers and heavy rain continue to chug across Central Georgia, the National Weather Service has issued a flood watch until noon today.

The region has received widespread amounts of three to four inches of rain since yesterday and an addition two to three inches is possible this morning.

Drivers should use caution as water is puddling on roads creating a hydroplane hazard.

In Houston County, cones are out on Perry Parkway near the old Northrop plant where localized flooding is washing away part of the road, according to Sgt. Jim Adams of the Houston 911 Center.

A wind advisory is also in effect from 7 a.m. today until 2 a.m. Friday as winds are expected to peak between 15 and 25 miles per hour with gusts of 30 miles per hour.
