Sylvester, GA (WALB) - City officials, firefighters, and code enforcers distributed fliers in areas affected by weekend storms.

People who live near creeks and low-lying areas are encouraged to get out. With more heavy rain in the forecast, areas that flooded over the weekend likely will flood again. 

"If the waters do come up and flood waters rise, then we will go in and shut of utilities and shut of gas to make that area safe as best we can," said Sylvester Fire Chief  Jody Yarbrough. "We are asking all of those who have already been affected to make plans. And if we do have the flooding they need to be prepared to leave the area."  

Sandbags are being filled. City residents needing sandbags call the fire department at (229)-776-8511. County residents should call Worth County public works at (229)-776-8223.
