ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Rain showers have caused rivers and streams in southwest Georgia to swell.

In downtown Albany, the Flint River has swallowed up trees along the banks of Riverfront Park. The river is also moving faster than normal.

The Flint is expected to crest Thursday at 14.9 feet, well below flood stage which is 20-feet. Neither the Kinchafoonee nor the Muckalee Creek in Lee County is in danger of flooding.
