Just heard on the news this evening that the Chatahoochee River, Atlanta area's source for water, will be dried up by next year because it is drying up now. If that's the case and there are water problems now, how will this problem be resolved?

Leftover rain from a hurricane or two next year will probably set things right. Dry times until then, though.

We've been on water restrictions all summer..but like the poster above said, it will even out. I'm not going to worry about it. Just conserve.

Does Georgia have hurricanes? I hope nothing that drastic has to happen to get rain. I would rather a "marathon rain dance" take place. Let's pray that Georgia will be able to sing "Rainey Night in Georgia" soon.

We are a coastal state and hurricanes cause rain, lots of rain.

For "my information", when is the last hurricane that Georgia had and how often does this occur?

By the time the hurricanes reach GA they are just big periods of heavy rain, lots of wind and some tornados.

Drought's a concern, especially because it stresses the trees. But really, this is yet another dire warning... and it seems like there's at least 2-3 dire warnings every year. Often contradictory ones. Soon enough we'll start hearing about the next dire warning (probably a gloomy prediction that we will have too MUCH water, and that due to global warming beach front property will be available in Conyers).

We get the remnants of hurricanes quite frequently, with the exception of the past two years in which there has been less hurricane activity in the US. They usually come up from FL or over from NC or SC. As far as the GA coast, I don't think that there has been a direct hit in a long time. They usually seem to hit NC which "sticks out" further into the Atlantic.

Default Hurricanes

Georgia does have a coast, but she also has barrier islands that take the brunt of anything major. I guess that, plus the way we are situated keep major hurricanes from bothering us. They usually go on up the coast, leaving us with lots of stormy, rainy nights (and days!)
We (in eastcentral GA) have been on water restriction every summer for several years now. We just conserve, try to plant flowers that can withstand the draught. Keep threatening to concrete the yard and paint it green.
