Albany-- People who live along the Muckalee and the Kinchafoonee are watching the creeks rise. Water has already made it into some people's homes, and some aren't taking any chances. They are packing up and getting out.

Yards are full of water, and people are wondering how high the water will get.

Here's a look at the areas we are keeping an eye on: The Northhampton subdivision along the Muckalee, and Lover's Lane Road near where the Muckalee and the Kinchafoonee meet.

Also, the Flint River is rising. The Greenway Trail in Riverfront Park is underwater. The Muckalee Creek crested around highway 195 Tuesday morning about a foot lower than predicted, but the creek is still rising in Lee County.
