SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Forecasters are warning of flash flooding in several areas of southeast and coastal Georgia.

The National Weather Service issued an advisory Monday saying areas including Statesboro, Hinesville, Savannah and Tybee Island are under a flash flood watch until midnight.

Forecasters say an approaching storm system moving out of the Gulf of Mexico is expected to bring heavy rainfall Monday evening. Forecasters say between 1 and 3 inches of rain could fall in most areas and some could see up to 5 inches.

Forecasters say low lying areas and areas with poor drainage are at risk for flash floods and driving could become hazardous in some areas.

Officials say residents and drivers should prepare for flooded roadways and road closures.
