Americus--   No strangers to disaster, Albany and Dougherty crews have helped with extensive cleanup efforts.

Crews from Albany Public Works have been in Americus since Thursday. Six employees spent the past few days loading and unloading tons of debris from neighborhoods. Monday, they helped to clear trees and limbs along Thomas Drive.

Employees know all about disaster from the Albany floods and say it's the least they can do to help out.

"Considering what we went through with the flood of '94, we understand how important it is to assist people and helping clean up when you have debris laying everywhere," said Albany Solid Waste Superintendent Daniel Whigham.

Albany crews plan to be in Americus for the rest of the week. They'll then assess the damage to see if they need to return next week.

Five Dougherty County Public Works employees spent last week and the weekend in the area assisting with cleanup efforts.
