A boil water advisory has been issued for South Hall and Flowery Branch residents south of Highway 53 until further notice. Heavy rains caused a water main break, leading to the advisory. Efforts are underway to have the problem resolved by midnight.

The Hall County Chairman has also issued a declaration of emergency for the southern end of Hall County affected by heavy rains and road closures Sunday.

Approximately 7.5 inches of rain fell in the area within six hours. As a result, portions of Atlanta Highway, McEver Road, Stephens Road, Trudy Drive, Flowery Way, Spring Street and Cove Creek Road have been closed, according to officials.
