What's this water going to do?

July 13, 2005

Albany-- The stage at Veterans Amphitheater on Front Street is Albany is covered by the brown water of the Flint River today. But the golf course at Radium Springs is still above water, and people in that area are not packing up to move to higher ground.

At noon, the water seemed to be holding steady or even slightly receding from its 22.03 foot mark, but the Flint is expected to crest Saturday at 30.5 feet. Flood stage is 20 feet.

The gates at the Georgia Power dam are open, allowing water from the north to flow toward Albany, Newton, Bainbridge, and points south.

The Muckalee Creek seems to pose no threat Wednesday, and we will report on the Kinchafoonee Creek later today.
