Some roads already closed in Albany

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Several roads in Dougherty County were closed Wednesday because of too much rain in too little time. The first road Dougherty Public Works closed this morning was Willson Road when water made it impassable.

Water from Piney woods creek began backing up again in Radial Subdivision this morning, but no roads had to be closed yet. N. Rosewood at Azalea in the Radium Springs neighborhood was briefly closed. It's now reopened.

Fast rising water worried Joyce Luke who though it may back up to her mother's home on Banks Avenue, county public works employees delivered sandbags to the house.  She said, "This morning when I went by, the ditch was very high and I knew it was going to come up into my mom's septic tank, her air condition and her well, so we called the county and they sent out sand bags to be able to put there. Who knows? It's just going to take time. The rain comes like it's forecast, she's leaving."

Luke said her mother is already packed in case the water gets too high.
