Flooding: Tracking creek and river levels

April 8, 2003

Albany -- Most of Southwest Georgia is under a Flood Watch until 5:00 AM Wednesday. Rivers, streams, and low lying areas are being monitored for possible flooding.

 More than two inches of rain has fallen in some areas in the last 24 hours and the possibility of another inch forecast overnight has prompted the National Weather Service to post the watch.

 Most of the rivers and creeks in South Georgia are still well below flood stage.

 Dougherty County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Bramble keeps a close eye on the levels. "I checked the Flint River a few minutes ago. It's a little over 6.4 feet at this time, and 20 foot is flood stage. The creeks also have gauges on them and we can access the National Weather Service, their hydrology reports, and keep track of it that way."

You can track Southwest Georgia creek and river levels through the U.S. Geologiocal Survey's website.
