Hampton residents brace for flooding | News – Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia 2020-09-16 19:09:00 –

Just around the corner from Atlanta Motor Speedway in the small town of Hampton, it’s a race against the clock to prepare for Tropical Storm Sally.

“I’m going to stay home, and I hope it doesn’t hit my house, but I’m worried about the other folks too,” Hampton resident Laura Cooley said.

It’s the talk of the town at Rutabaga’s Market and Café just off Main Street.

Cari Montgomery and her mother Lillian are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

“It’s amazing because my front yard will flood within minutes,” Montgomery said.

And the forecast calls for up to 7 inches of rain over the next couple of days.

We’re just keeping an eye on it, just seeing what’s going on. It looks like we’re going to get a lot of rain,” Rutabaga’s Market and Café Owner Tracy North said.

It’s a big concern for a small town, but nothing this community can’t overcome. They can only hope they reach the finish line in this racing town with little to no damage.
