ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Rain is pouring down in many parts of South Georgia.

Expect that to continue overnight and much of Saturday.

If you're worried about flooding in your home, you can pick up sandbags put together by Albany and Dougherty County Public Works crews.

Workers have made hundreds of sand bags and there's a good supply that's left. Public Works officials are encouraging residents to take advantage of these bags to protect your property.

Albany is expected to see between 5 to 11 inches.

We caught up with one Albany resident who's taking advantage of these sand bags because he's afraid the rain will wash away his termite protection around his home and make life miserable.

"I really worry about termites and I don't want to get water underneath my house. Water and termites underneath the house just don't do well, so I really want to keep it out, the water," said David Fry.

Fry grabbed 20 bags of sand and that's what they're here for. There are plenty of bags available that can be picked up under the Jefferson Street overpass on Hodges Avenue.

You can also pick up sandbags at the Dougherty County Public Works building on Habersham Road.

Workers will make more bags this weekend if needed.
