More rain fell Thursday drenching parts of metro Atlanta that are already flooded. High water levels forcing rivers over their banks and shutting down roads, parks, and trails in Cherokee County.

"It's a mess, it's a mess, there's water everywhere!" said Karen Kerby. 

Kerby was checking out Johnson Brady Road in Cherokee County which was shut down because the water was too deep to safely drive through. 

"Obviously we don't want any of our residents to drive through that, and if there's more rain, more roads will shut down," said Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Director Jay Baker.

Many around here have grown weary of all the rain. 

"I'm so tired of it, I've had enough of the rain," said Kristen Lowe.

"The kids can't go out and play, they're running around driving me crazy. I need the rain to stop. So you can get the kids out of the house? Yes!" said Lowe.
