One of the worst areas was Goodyear Village, according to Rockmart Police Chief Keith Sorrells.
Sorrells said the whole area was flooded. Goodyear Street and areas surrounding Wingfoot Street have been blocked off. Wingfoot Street and Newcomb Steet were impassable, as two ladies found out.
"I came through that road and it was already up to my tires," said Samantha Scott, pointing to Newcomb Street. "I get to the pole right there and had to back up."
Sandy Popham was trying to get to the third home on Wingfoot Street to check on a friend. She couldn't.
"I've never seen it like this," Popham said, dialing the number on her cellphone to call her friend to check on her safety.
The police chief added that he had been busy all morning checking other areas. Sorrells said many areas, like Suntrust Bank on Elm Street, looked fine earlier because quickly flooded with the last torrent of rain.
Sorrells estimated the last downpour caused waters around Suntrust to rise about eight inches.
It looked worse with water rushing into the area. The drive-through was closed and some were out looking at the flooded area.
Seaborn Jones Park was flooded as well with Euharlee Creek overflowing into the park.
Old Cartersville Road was nearly impassable and road crews were out checking on a large downed tree on College Street, with some of the tree blocking the road.
Chattooga levee in danger; Trion residents evacuated
According to reports from the Associated Press, crews are working furiously to shore up a levee along the Chattooga River that is in danger of failing.
Chattooga County officials say the rising waters forced them to evacuate hundreds of residents of the town of Trion, which sits near the levee.
Chattooga County Emergency Management Agency Director Lamar Canada says water is about a foot from the top of the levee and the river's level is rising fast.
He says "it's a grave situation for us - it's the first time it's happened in more than a decade."
