According to other local news sources, Hurricane Ida sent over 4 inches of rain to Atlanta yesterday. This record number quickly caused more flooding around town, even in the ATLflood HQ basement. Apparently the storms were so severe that a small geyser erupted from beneath our house, sending massive amounts of water spraying up from the floor. We didn’t want to risk damaging our higher end photo equipment, but here’s a quick cell phone photo capturing the event.

I was able to stop the flow of water earlier this morning but I’m somewhat concerned that I may have caught trench foot while wading through the swampy waters.

Better version of the shot we posted last night. Thanks to Caroline Smith for the photo.

Apparently, the photo of Turner Field from our original post was somewhat unclear. Hopefully this shot from a different angle will help show the recognizable sign in the background and clear up some of the issues from the earlier photo.

We just heard a rumor that filmmaker Ken Burns is considering producing a documentary for PBS about natural disasters across America — which could possibly feature footage from the Atlanta flooding. Stay tuned for more details.

Luckily, we’re armed with the finest in protective rain gear. And fish sticks.
