Chairwoman Lisa Cupid spent the afternoon surveying damage caused by the Tuesday night/Wednesday morning storm event.

Cobb DOT and Emergency Management had been at it for hours dealing with the aftermath and they kicked the cleanup into high gear.

∙ Cobb DOT dealt with more than two dozen flooded roadways overnight

∙ Crews cleared eight streets closed by fallen trees

∙ Cobb's Gymnastics Center is closed due to flooding. Other parks sustained damage

∙ Six Cobb government buildings had flood damage

The flooded roadways have been reopened, but the cleanup will take the rest of the week.
