Dougherty/Lee County - The Flint River is now expected to crest Sunday morning at 8 AM, ten feet above flood level. Right now, water covers the stage at the Veteran's Amphitheater, but not much other damage has been caused.

In Lee County, Kinchafoonee Creek kept Brenda Allen up all night long fearful she may see a repeat of what happened in March. She says, "This whole area flooded out and it was about 12 foot high. It went clear up to the top of my trailer. When the adjuster came out it was approximately 56 inches in the trailer."

Brenda Allen says the creek began to level off around 6 AM Wednesday and has been dropping very slowly since. Dougherty County EMA Director Jim Vaught says damage estimates of roads are upwards of $100,000, but no one has yet reported damage to personal property.
