ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The National Weather Service warned South Georgia Emergency Management agencies to be ready for possible severe weather Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Albany Public works cleaned out sewer and storm lines to prepare for heavy rain Monday.

Emergency Managers were warned to expect strong wind gusts and up to 3 inches of rain.

The biggest concern is downed trees and power lines.

"The downed power lines which cause public works problems related to the storm with the sanitation that we have. Obviously because the power gets knocked out we can't move material through the pipes. The rain if it's spread out over a 12 to 24 hour period shouldn't be a problem," said Albany Public Works Director Phil Roberson. 

Most of the holding ponds in the city are empty. Emergency Managers say you should stay off the roads Tuesday night if possible because heavy rain could cause dangerous driving conditions.
