ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Though the rain has stopped for now, many people still have water in and around their homes.  A few people still have trouble getting into their homes in the Radial Subdivision after water from the Piney Wood Creek overflowed into the neighborhood.

Water didn't creep inside Michael Luxon's home, but it did get into his neighbor's. Now he hopes it dries out before more rain comes into the area.

"They got sandbags, but the water still went through the sandbags; their front room is damaged. It doesn't need to rain any more and that is for sure. If the water gets any hire, I will be in the verge of flood damage," said Luxon.

Public safety wants to remind drivers not to drive through water over roads. And to never move a barricade from a closed road. Many roads remained closed across South Georgia.
