Southeast Struggles to Recover From Floods

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Georgia and much of the Southeast is recuperating from the heavy rains and floods that destroyed homes and cars this week. Ten people have officially been reported dead because of the floods. Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue declared a state of emergency and has asked the federal government for assistance. For an update on the situation, we speak to Susanna Capelouto, news director for Georgia Public Broadcasting, and Angela Olson, whose house was damaged in the flooding.
