Colquitt County- Many South Georgia streams and rivers are receding after flooding their banks. The Ochlocknee River, near Thomasville, got up to 17 feet, two feet above the flood level.

Cheryl Null lives on Zion Grove Church Road in Colquitt County, near the Thomas County line. The Little Ochlocknee River has flooded at least 200 feet into the woods behind her house. She says the water level has gone down tremendously since yesterday afternoon. She says, "We need a good flood once in a while to help the woods, but it can go, I'm ready for sun if you know what I mean."

The Ochlocknee River in Thomas County is expected to go back below the 15 foot flood level by Thursday evening.
