Leesburg- Tropical Storm Bonnie continues to churn in the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night, but it could soon head straight for south Georgia.
That's why Albany Red Cross volunteers are on stand-by with their emergency response vehicles, ready to help feed people if needed.
"Already we are moving people into place, precisely the hurricane watch team which is being activated as we speak," said Bill Hamby, a disaster relief volunteer.
Bonnie may bring heavy rain to Albany, so public works employees spent today cleaning out storm drains.
"Albany's system is not designed to handle excessive rainfall amounts, so when you have the areas that typically flood, just be aware of that," said Phil Roberson, director of Public Works. "Don't drive in any of the areas that flood, back up or go another way because it's takes a little while sometimes to get barricades out to all the areas that flood."
Public Works crews say you can help by keeping trash out of your gutters so storm drains won't get clogged.
