(Franklin, GA) — As expected due to the amount of rainfall over the last couple of days, the Chattahoochee River overflowed its banks Thursday afternoon with water entering into the Old Recreation Department area in Franklin.

While it is way too early to estimate how far the water will rise or when it will recede, these flood waters clearly pose a threat to this Saturday’s planned Chattahoochee Independence day festivities and fireworks.

Forecasts that earlier in the week called for only a small chance of Saturday rain have now been adjusted and the current forecast calls for a 60% chance of scattered thunderstorms throughout the day on Saturday.

Festival organizers are expected to meet sometime tomorrow to make a final decision on the event. Stay tuned to HeardCitizen.com for any updates as they happen.
