Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued Earlier Today Within Metropolitan Atlanta


A severe thunderstorm watch was issued earlier today around 2:06 p.m. within Metropolitan Atlanta. The area experienced heavy rains causing some streets near Clark Atlanta University’s (CAU) campus to flood and some of the University’s residence halls to experience flooding.  
CAU Public Safety, Student Affairs, and Facilities Management quickly responded to the incidents to support students during the inclement weather. Additionally, remediation companies are currently on campus removing water and making repair assessments. All students living in the residential areas affected by flooding are in the process of being relocated to new housing.  We will continue to assess the impact of the severe inclement weather.
