Albany, GA - Much of the WALB viewing area is under a flash flood watch, as more heavy rain moves in from the Southwest.
Our area could get three to four inches of rain by tomorrow, and more heavy rain is predicted for Monday.
Public safety officials advise you to stay off the roads if possible, as many streets and roads have standing water.
If you hit water while driving, don't brake, just take your foot off the accelerator.
If you approach an area of road that is covered in water, turn around and do not attempt to drive through it.
Never use your cruise control when driving in rain, and always use your headlights.
