A severe weather system, parked from the Gulf Coast to the Southeastern U.S., is bringing more heavy rain to the region.
Some areas are getting five inches or more, and flash-flooding remains a major concern.
Members of one church in Gulfport witnessed waist deep water covering their car doors.
“A foot of rain fell in less than an hour,” reports CNN Meteorologist Indra Petersons. “And business owners along Highway 49, found water rushing into their stores.”
One man says, “They didn't even get that heavy during Katrina.
In Biloxi, Mississippi, stranded motorists were caught off guard by the deluge.
“The fire department rushed in to help dozens of stalled cars.”
Now that stationary front that brought heavy rain over the weekend is still soaking parts of the Southeast.
And flash flood watches are out for areas in Georgia and Florida.
