Six Flags is under water, following heavy rain over last several days which trapped several people in their homes and killed many.
Days of torrential rain in the Southeast claimed at least eight lives, including a toddler and a 15-year-old boy whose corpse was found in the Chattooga River.
The toddler was swept away from his family when a swollen creek ripped apart their trailer home in west Georgia on Monday. Many others killed were drivers whose vehicles were pushed off roads by rapidly rising waters.
ABCNews reports that Six Flags in under water, in some places portions of the roller coaster tracks have disappeared under muddy water.
New reports are emerging every minute. It is amazing how the massive roller coaster is almost submerged in places.
It may be several months or even year before the roller coaster can be restored after water clears.
Note: Six Flags in Georgia is located in 7561 Six Flags Pkwy in Austell, Georgia.
Just months before the region suffered from a massive two year drought. Is it is beginning of the massive climate changes that environmentalists talk about?
