Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued across north Georgia Friday afternoon. WSB-TV said the area was experiencing heavy rain.

"There's really no place for that water to go, so it's really causing an issue," WSB-TV Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns said.

The water has receded a bit, but heavy delays still remain in the area.
