ATLANTA (AP) - Damage from severe weather that has flooded north Georgia and killed at least eight people has been estimated at $250 million.

I've gotten a number of calls the last few days from family and friends back in Georgia and the topic of conversation undoubtedly has been the big flood in Atlanta. There has been rain and there has been rain, but nothing like this as far as I can remember. Talk about devastation! When you have highways closed, homes flooded, schools closed and for those fisherman, well you know what that means to rivers, no fishing or you better have some chum out and some level 800 grain Teeny line! Not much fishing around here for awhile and I can only imagine how uch more polluted the Chattahoochee will be after this. A very sad state anyway you look at it and it will be sometime before things get back to normal again, I just hope that the victims from this flood get all the help needed or if you feel like helping contact the Atlanta Red Cross to make a donation
