The National Weather Service has issued flood watches and warnings for most of North Carolina as the remnants of Hurricane Ida bring heavy rain across the state. Meteorologists say rainfall amounts will reach up to five inches in North Carolina by tomorrow morning.
Farther south, heavy rain overnight caused several metro Atlanta area creeks to flood. Most of north and central Georgia has been under a flash flood watch. Rain is expected to continue in the South today as the weather system continues tacking northeastward up the East Coast.
