Leesburg, GA (WALB) – Remember the serious flooding we had throughout south Georgia last spring?
The National Weather Service says we could see a repeat this year.
An active el nino weather pattern brought up to twice the normal amount of rainfall in some areas over the past three months.
The soil is still wet and water levels in river basins are high.
Now, the weather service says a wet spring could lead to flooding.
Lee County Emergency Management says they're keeping a watchful eye on the weather and preparing for what could happen.
"At this point we're preparing for the potential of a spring flood - at least similar to what we've had over the past few months - and possibly even worse. it's one of those things as emergency management, we plan for the worst, we prepare for the worst, and hope for the best," said Lee County EMA Director James Howell.
The National Weather Service says there's a 40% chance of above normal spring rain in south central Georgia and equal chances of below normal, normal, or above normal rainfall in southwest Georgia.
