STONE MOUNTAIN This reader-submitted photo shows flash flooding at a playground in Stone Mountain’s Mainstreet neighborhood after heavy rain on Wednesday. The rain tapered off by early afternoon in much of metro Atlanta, but flash flood warnings remained in effect in DeKalb until after 5 p.m.
Flash-flooding was also reported along South Hairston between Covington Highway and Redan Road. Metro residents might get a break from the wet weather as forecasts call for less rain and hotter temperatures through Friday.
