Strange river names

September 23, 2009

Since it’s flooding all over Georgia lately, rivers are in the spotlight. There are some strange rivers around here, for example (from the National Weather Service Flood Warning today)

TUCSAWHATCHEE CREEK NEAR HAWKINSVILLE (looser say whatCHEE ?)
OCMULGEE RIVER NEAR ABBEVILLE (find me another name that has a C followed by an M)
OCONEE RIVER NEAR PENFIELD (Oh-Cone-EE), see below
CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER NEAR WHITESBURG (I just like the HOOCHEE part of this one)
