Tammy Soaks Southeast; Flooding Reported in Georgia

October 6, 2005

Although now a depression, what was once Tropical Storm Tammy flooded homes and roads in parts of Georgia Wednesday night and into Thursday. The storm brought down trees and power lines, leaving more than 16,500 utility customers without power from Savannah to the south.

Forecasters said that Tammy would dissipate soon, but not before also dumping 3 to 5 inches of rain in eastern South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina.

As of late Thursday morning, Tammy was situated near Ozark, Alabama, moving west near 12 mph. Its winds were blowing at about 35 mph. Storm warnings were removed for the coast, but heavy rain and isolated tornadoes were a possibility in Georgia and the Carolinas.

Earlier in the week, Tammy sat off the eastern Florida coast, but never materialized into a hurricane.
