LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Heavy rains and rising banks have many in South Georgia who live along water concerned. The banks along the Kinchafoonee Creek have started to rise again.
A new advisory states that it is set to crest at 17-feet sometime close to 7:00 AM Sunday morning. The creek had previously crested to almost 14-feet Friday night before the water started rising again.
The Muckalee creek also crested Friday night at almost 14-feet, but it will still take sometime for those levels to drop.
"It's going to take some time for that water to work on to the south end. And hopefully by this afternoon or later on tonight it should reach the crest down there," said Lee County Emergency Management Director, James Howell.
The Muckalee Creek crested just under flood stage at 7:00 PM Friday night along Highway 195. Residents who live on North Hampton should expect to see the worst of it by Saturday evening.
Flooding caused a South Georgia state park to close Saturday afternoon. The Lake at Reed Bingham is about 15-feet-high. This time of year the lake is normally about 3-and-half feet high.
Rangers have had to collect picnic benches and tables because of the high water. They expect the high levels to remain for at least two to three days.
