AUGUSTA, Ga. – A round of thunderstorms impacted the CSRA overnight and this morning, and has about ended across most of the area as of early afternoon. A Tornado Watch remains in effect for Emanuel, Jenkins and Screven counties until 9 p.m.
Another round of rain and thunderstorms are expected to impact the CSRA later this afternoon. Please plan accordingly and allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination as you head out and about later this afternoon and this evening. Numerous traffic accidents occurred Friday morning as a result of the heavy rain.
A Tornado Warning and Severe Thunderstorm Warning were issued for parts of Emanuel County during the late morning and early afternoon, but so far, no damage or injury reports have been received by News Channel 6.
Severe weather can’t be ruled out as round 2 impacts our area, but the overall threat appears to be less than it was this morning.
