The city of Savannah hosts the annual Georgia Day Parade, but it was canceled this year after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police said it was canceled due to inclement weather. Forsyth Park, that would have served as the starting point for the parade did have minor flooding in some areas.

There was also some access water on surrounding Bull and Drayton streets. There is no plan to reschedule the Georgia Day Parade at this time.
