Remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto unloaded torrents of rain on Georgia for the second straight day Tuesday, forcing hundreds from their homes and causing the death of a woman whose car went out of control on a flooded road. The storm dumped more than a foot of rain on parts of the north and central sections of the state. Mudslides were reported in several areas, and the dam of the Lamar County reservoir broke, forcing the evacuation of residents downstream.

The Dodgers' opening-day game was lost to rain, but a new leader might have been found Tuesday when Darryl Strawberry took the podium from Manager Tom Lasorda in a pregame meeting. Several hours before the Dodgers' game against the Atlanta Braves was postponed because of the weather, Strawberry thanked his teammates for accepting him and urged them to stick together during the upcoming 162 games. It was an unprecedented move for a new player but the type of move that Strawberry vowed to repeat.

Officials at Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters tournament each April, still haven't finished inspecting damage from heavy rains and flooding last week, but it appears some rebuilding will be necessary. Amen Corner, a stretch of three difficult holes, was one of the casualties when the remains of Tropical Storm Marco hit eastern Georgia. The green on No. 11, first of the three holes, was washed away when Rae's Creek overflowed. Flood waters also damaged a bunker on No.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto remained a massive black cloud camped over much of Georgia and parts of Alabama and Florida on Wednesday, pounding the region for a third straight day with steady rains that have shut major interstate highways, knocked out power and water systems and led to the deaths of at least 13 people. Drinking water was being trucked into Macon, Ga., a city of 120,000 residents, after the Ocmulgee River rose and swamped a purification plant.
