VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The City of Valdosta is also preparing for potential flooding Fay may bring.

And they are making some extra tools to handle the surge.

City employees spent the day stuffing sandbags. Some have been given to the police department and others will be placed around the city at the first sign of flooding.

They've also lowered water levels and prepared equipment in case it's needed.

They say they've done there part and now want to the community to prepare as well. 

"We want them to secure their property as best they can. Tie down your benches, your chairs, get them inside. Look at your pets. Be sure your pets are safe," says Public Works Director John Whitehead.

They also say to buy a NOAA weather radio and stock up a three day supply of food, medicines and water in case streets flood or the power goes out.
