I saw recently that N.Atlanta had a massive flood that was all over the news. (and my thoughts and prayers go out to the families). I live in N.C. so i try to stay abreast whats going on there in Atlanta since i would love to live there soon but i'm unfamiliar with the landscape. Although; upon visiting i off and on, i noticed that certain parts of Atlanta have alot of upgrades and downgraded areas. Mite anyone know what areas of Atlanta were flooded and would that be expected in just the areas that were hit?

Nearly 20 counties have been listed in the govenor's list of "disaster" affected areas. VP Biden visited an area Red Cross on Sept. 25th after the govenor wrote to have Georgia federally declared. I doubt if much of this was expected given that Georgia has been suffering from a drought in the last few years.
Bartow, Carroll, Catoosa, Chattooga, Cherokee, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fulton, Gwinnett, Heard, Newton, Paulding, Rockdale, Stephens and Walker. I live in Gwinnett, one of the counties affected and will put a link below to the GA Association of Floods.

The rainfall maps on these two sites might give you some idea about where the rainfall hit:
