ATLANTA -- Flooding was the major issue in this weekend's storms but lightning strikes kept rescue crews busy too.

MORE | May 19 storms and flooding photos

A home on Condor Drive in Lawrenceville was hit and caused a fire.  No one was hurt.

Rushing rapids in Suwannee caused a nearby lake to quickly rise.

Residents there say they got about six inches of rain, but the water is already starting to drop.

The high waters are putting thousands of dollars worth of crops in jeopardy.

Severe flooding and a mudslide closed a Dawson County road for at least two weeks.

Dawson County Emergency Management confirmed that Etowah River Road was washed out at the place where the road runs parallel to the Etowah River.

And it was a dramatic horse rescue in northern Fulton County.

That happened on River Run in Sandy Springs.  More than a dozen horses had to be evacuated because of the rising water from the Chattahoochee.

The horses are part of a riding academy based in the area.  They were all OK.
