SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Sylacauga residents woke up Wednesday morning, June 8, to multiple roads flooded throughout the town and their places of business receiving water damage.

The rain started to pour in the early morning hours, and as you can see in the Facebook posts embedded below, multiple routes through Sylacauga were affected or even shut down by the flooding.

 
 

Due to the water making its way into buildings and the travel issues caused by the heavy rainfall, a number of businesses, especially those located in or around downtown Sylacauga, have either cancelled operations for the day or postponed their openings until this afternoon.

At the time of this writing, Talladega County is still under a flash flood warning. Estimations suggest that around three to five inches of rain have fallen. According to forecasts, the rain is expected to let up in the early afternoon hours before beginning again around 5:00 p.m.

Talladega County is also under a flood warning until 2:00 p.m. and a flood watch until 1:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, June 9.
