(WXIA) -- A flash flood warning is in effect for DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties. Heavy rain has been causing reports of flooding along creeks and streams and along local roads this evening.
The NWS in Peachtree City reports that Crooked Creek in Norcross has had a significant rise in the water level. It rose over 4 feet in 30 minutes between 8:30 and 9pm. The creek was at 9 feet at 9pm and may reach flood stage of 12 feet soon.
The moderate to heavy rain has been persistent for about 2-3 hours in the Atlanta area. This rain is causing some problems in some local areas with ponding and flooding on roadways. Georgia DOT reports all lanes blocked at I-20 westbound at Hill Street due to flooding on the interstate. We have had other reports of streets that are collecting water scattered around the area.
