Thunderstorms later this afternoon and overnight may produce some hail and gusty winds to possibly 60 mph....locally heavy rainfall and lightning. The storms should steadily weaken as they move eastward...so your risk of a severe storm is higher to the east and lower to the west.
Marietta schools will be closed Wednesday due to a water line break near the Middle School. The 3-inch line serves the Middle and High Schools, but the district will close all three schools for the day.
The break happened on a three-inch line around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night and crews will work into the night to get it repaired, but Maintenance Director Al Freeman says the schools will definitely be closed on Wednesday.
The on-going drought is to blame for the break - the shifting earth was too much for the cast iron pipe to handle.
