Heavy rains are blowing through Savannah and nearby counties and the Lowcountry on Wednesday.
Meteorologist John Wetherbee said there's still the potential for isolated strong late-day thunderstorms with a slowly approaching cold front. He said clusters of locally heavy showers on Wednesday morning, now passing Charleston, and a second large rain shield with embedded thunder over SW Georgia, sliding toward Brunswick, are in fact stabilizing our area.
A tree fell in the backyard of an Atkinson Avenue home, knocking out power for a neighbor. Crews are working to restore the power now. A large tree limb also came crashing down on power lines at a home on Henry Street.
Sections of some streets including Mall Boulevard and Victory Drive were flooded earlier Wednesday.
Senior Meteorologist Pat Prokop said the Coffee Bluff area has received just over 1 1/3" of rain so far.
