ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  River and creeks in southwest Georgia will likely spill their banks thanks to this weeks rain, but there will be no threat of flooding.

The Flint River behind the Albany Civic Center is out of its banks and moving swiftly. At the Georgia Power Dam, they're moving the water to help keep the levels in Lake Chehaw and Lake Blackshear down, making the river level higher.

Neighbors along the Muckalee Creek in Lee County may also see higher levels, but the creek like most is expected to crest about a foot below flood stage.
