ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Public Works crews made sandbags Thursday as they continue to prepare for Tropcial Storm Fay.

Public Works Director Phil Roberson says it's the next step in Public Works' ramp up for potential bad weather.  

Crews planned to make 500 bags. They're not available to the public, but they could be handed out if Albany gets a lot of rain.

"If we see that it's going to happen," said  Roberson. "We're going to get more than two, three inches of rain then we'll put out the messages to folks to come out and come by and get them, we'll make them available to them, they can use them around their businesses or residences if they think the water is going to rise."

Crews didn't want to make too many bags and waste the resources if they're not needed.
