Albany -- Over 5 inches of rain fell in Albany from thunderstorms Sunday night. Several Southwest Georgia counties were under a flash flood warning.

Albany Police and Fire department responded to downded power lines as utility companies worked to restore power to affected residents. A tree even crashed into one Albany home.

Runoff is expected to cause flooding of small creeks and streams, highways, and underpasses.

It is not advised to drive your car in areas where water is covering the roadway.

You may not be able to cross safely since it only takes a foot or two of flowing water to sweep most cars away. If you see flooding or flood damage, contact police.
