VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - It's been less than two weeks since Tropical Storm Fay flooded parts of South Georgia.

Now Tropical Storm Hanna is bearing down on the coast. Is South Georgia ready?

Leaders in Lowndes County say they are.

They say repairs of the damage left behind by Fay are nearly done.

Fay tested their preparation efforts, and they believe their infrastructure for any other storms we may see this hurricane season.

"Not only was it a good test for us as far as our infrastructure goes and how our roads, streets and bridges are going to hold up, but it was also a good test on how our communication goes. So we are very pleased all around with Fay," says Paige Dukes with the Lowndes County Commission Office.

Lowndes officials say keeping culverts cleaned and administrators prepared for a storm is a year-round task they've been working on since Hurricane Jeanne pummeled the county back in 2004.
