ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After days of torrential downpours and flash flooding in many South Georgia counties, water is beginning to recede, and rivers are beginning to crest.

The river was at almost 31 and a half feet at about 1:30 PM Saturday afternoon. Flood stage is at 20 feet. Many people were at River Front park to see the flooding in person.

Don Rehberg went with his daughter. This was the first time she's ever seen the Flint River so high.

"This used to happen a lot back in the 60's and 70's, but in the past few years it stopped. So this kind of reminds me of how it used to be, almost every year for a few days like this," said Don Rehberg.

The Flint River is expected to crest at 32 feet in Newton sometime Sunday.
