ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Across South Georgia tonight many of you were checking on loved ones.

That was a tough challenge for Stephen Ramsey.

He had to cross standing water over Camelia Road in Radium Springs to get to his great-grandmother's home.

After he walked down the road to make sure it was okay under the water, he and a Sheriff's Deputy splashed through.

Ramsey said "I heard about the rain and the flooding going on down here. And when I came through I can see there's probably about a foot of water in the street."

Ramsey made it through the water safely and took his great-grandmother back to his home in Lee County.
