Georgia Weather History for December 28th

In 1997, heavy rain, with amounts of 3 to 4 inches, fell on already saturated ground across central Georgia. Street flooding was common with some roads damaged and others closed. Residents along rivers evacuated their homes in some areas as flood waters threatened. The rivers rose to their highest levels since the 1994 floods. Monthly rainfall amounts totaled 8 to 10 inches across much of central Georgia.

In 2005, a severe weather outbreak occurred across central Georgia resulting in many reports of hail and several tornadoes. Hail up to the size of baseballs was reported in Crisp, Troup and Johnson Counties. The largest hail stones reported were the size of softballs (4.25 inches) in Sumter County. Five tornados were reported, the strongest being an F-1 that occurred in Laurens and Johnson Counties where over $500,000 in damage was done.
