ALBANY, GA (WALB) - With three tropical systems churning at once, Emergency Management officials say it's a good time to check your emergency kit.

What's now Tropical Depression Claudette sent rain into southwest Georgia over the weekend. Depending on the path of Ana, we could get more rain later in the week. Emergency officials are closely monitoring the recent grouping of storms. They say it's a great reminder to make sure you have enough supplies in an emergency kit to last 72 hours.

"Food supplies, medicine supplies, financial, special things you might need in the way of diapers for children, but just what you would need to keep yourself going for 72 hours," said Dougherty County EMA Deputy Director Jim Vaught.

More than 34,000 households in Dougherty County and Albany have registered for the Code Red alert system that send out weather warnings via a phone call. Emergency managers say they'll be in conference calls with the National Weather Service all week watching for potential problems in southwest Georgia.
