BAINBRIDGE,  GA (WALB) –Our southernmost counties were on alert after suffering major damage from flooding in the spring.

Nearly 50 homes in Decatur county were damaged then.

Thankfully that area only received a little wind and rain.

There were no reports or power outages or damage but Bainbridge officials say it was a good opportunity to practice their emergency plan.

They had several people on call overnight just in case.

 

"In our recent past with all the storms we've had and all the water damage and flooding you know the folks in this area are a little on edge and a little nervous anytime we see a forecast we had yesterday but luckily this was a non event," said Chris Hobby, Bainbridge city manager.

Back in the spring a culvert underneath Slough Loop burst. That road still hasn't been fixed.

Many people in that area are still struggling to get back on their feet and say they get nervous whenever they see a severe weather forecast.
