THOMASVILLE — Some motorists who attempted to forge flooded streets during heavy rainfall Sunday found their vehicles disabled, while a car left a city street and landed in a ditch.
Heavy rain caused minor flooding on several city streets, said City Manager Alan Carson.
Streets flooded were South Broad, Mitchell, Clay and South Stevens and West Remington Avenue.
“One (vehicle) went into a ditch at Campbell Street and Industrial Boulevard due to water over the roadway,” Carson said.
Three inches of rain were recorded Sunday at the City of Thomasville Berry Building on Fletcher Street.
Some areas of Thomas County received three and a half inches of rain Sunday, Carson said.
Three inches were recorded Sunday in the Pavo area, but only one and a half inches at Thomas County public works on County Farm Road, said Tony Bodiford, public works director.
“All our (dirt) roads seem to be in good shape,” he said.
Public works crews were checking county dirt roads Monday morning, particularly remote plantation dirt roads in southwest Thomas County. Bodiford said the roads are not heavily-traveled.
