By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lee County Emergency Management crews are keeping a close eye on Lee County streams and creeks.

Along Highway 32 the Muckalee Creek spilled its banks on both sides of the highway. Crews worry with higher rainfall amounts north of Leslie, the creek could reach some homes and backyards. The creek is expected to crest at 13.5 feet on Saturday, a foot and a half shy of the official flood stage.

Heavy runoff is also flowing into the Kinchafoonee Creek. It's expected to crest Friday three feet above flood stage at 16 feet.
