Lee County-- Area creeks, and rivers are on a quick rise once again in South Georgia.
Recent heavy rains from hurricane's Frances, and Ivan have prompted the National Weather Service to issue flood warnings for the Flint River and the Kinchafoonee Creek.
For the second time in as many weeks a tropical system has dumped rain on South Georgia. Already over nine inches has fallen in September alone, but with adequate timing and stream flow management after Frances, residents see only minor problems from Ivan.
"I don't think were going to have as much water this time as we did about a week ago," said longtime creek resident George Morris.
The Kinchafoonee creek is expected to crest at 16.1 feet at 8:00AM Monday morning, that's 3.1 feet above flood stage, and only a flood threat to some low-lying areas, and not to homes.
The tropics are still active though, and with the uncertainty of more storms, that has even a 39-year resident of the creek banks remembering the floods of 94' and 98'.
"Every time we have a hurricane come up like Jeanne now, you never know what's gonna take place and maybe come on up this way and then we may have another flood like we did in 98' and 94," said Morris.
