WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -
Worth County officials are doing all they can to make sure residents are prepared for potential flooding.
Worth County experienced localized flooding Saturday after 8 inches of rain fell on top of the 12 inches they had last week.
And more rain could create more problems for folks in the area. 28 roads remain closed in Worth County after Saturday's rain.
Officials says just about every dirt road in the county is washed out. Because of the road closures, officials have closed Worth County schools for students on Monday. Faculty and staff should report to work if possible.
And officials are asking residents to be proactive before the weather gets too bad.
"We are asking everyone that if you have already flooded, if you've flooded yesterday, if you've flooded last week, or if you've flooded in the past, beware. Try to get out in time, get out before it gets too late, before you have to wade through the water or have to have somebody come get you," said Captain John Graddy, the Worth County Emergency Management Director.
Worth County officials are providing sandbags to some residents in the community.
Please be aware that Worth County is limiting sandbags to 20 per home. Citizens living in the city need to contact Sylvester Fire Dept at 229-776-8510 for sandbags. Citizens in the county need to contact Worth County Fire Rescue at 229-776-8223.
