The final day of the first week of a four-day Memorial Day weekend is just days away and many golf courses across the country are still closed due to bad weather.
On Monday, the National Weather Service in Atlanta issued a flood warning for the Atlanta area for the weekend and advised that “any major flooding events, such as floods, mudslides, or heavy rain, may occur on Memorial Day Weekend.”
The Atlanta area has experienced severe flooding over the past several weeks, causing more than $30 million in damage.
The National Weather Services office in Atlanta said in a statement that it is advising all golf courses to be prepared for “any flooding, mudslinging, mud slides or heavy rains” on Memorial Monday.
The National Weather Center in Norman, Oklahoma, issued a similar warning on Monday afternoon.
On Tuesday, the Weather Service said there are more than 20 road closures and four major water rescues.
A highway bridge near Grand Junction, Colorado, collapsed in heavy rain in early June, forcing some people to use a wheelchair.
On Wednesday, a storm surge advisory was issued for much of the western U.S., but in some places, it is still not expected to impact travel, according to The Associated Press.
The agency said the storm surge could rise to 1 to 2 feet and potentially create flash flooding in parts of Texas and Louisiana.
On Thursday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency issued a mandatory evacuation order for residents in areas that experienced heavy flooding or significant flooding, including portions of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Officials said that the mandatory order was issued due to a significant risk to life and property.
