Chatham County in southeastern Georgia...
Jasper County in southeastern South Carolina...

Wentworth... thunderbolt... Vernonburg and Skidaway Island.

An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected over the area. Minor
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas is likely.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing... find
another Route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Heavy rain in downtown Savannah will result in nuisance flooding of
low-lying areas. Slow down when traveling... allow extra distance
between you and the vehicle ahead... and do not drive into water of
unknown depth.

If torrential rain continues and the threat for flash flooding
increases... a Flash Flood Warning may be issued.
