28 Record flooding never seen before occurs with widespread inundation of the woodlands near the river upstream and downstream from the gage on Georgia Highway 124. Numerous homes on Riveredge Cove...River Walk...Riverlake Way and Riverview Court will be flooded with water up to 9 feet deep. The USGS gage house will be under 4 feet of water with a data transmission loss. This flooding will be worse than September 2009 flood event.
