Emergency Notification Alerts Code Red Dekalb County GA - The other night I received a phone call from a toll free number. It was the Dekalb County's Emergency Notification Alert. Due to the heavy rains and flooding Governor Sonny Perdue declared a state of emergency for 17 Georgia Counties.

This rain and flooding is highly unusual for metro Atlanta. It was the worst "storm" in 90 years. We are starting to dry out and look forward to sunny days.
