Lowndes County - South Georgia has seen more than its share of afternoon thunderstorms over the past week. That's causing big problems with transportation in one county.

Lowndes county has got about 12 inches of rain since last Tuesday, leaving a muddy mess on several of the county's dirt roads. Maintenance crews are working overtime to get the roads repaired and reopened, but some of the damage is so severe, they're having to rebuild parts.

"The problem that we have right now is that crews are constantly working to repair these roads but the next afternoon, we get another shower of rain," said Paige Dukes. "Basically, we're just grating roads to have them rained on and destroyed again and have to go back and rebuild."

Parts of Deercrest, Dodd and Quarterman Roads were closed earlier this week, but have now reopened.
