ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia food bank is preparing to help out potential flood victims in the 30 counties it serves.

Second Harvest of South Georgia set aside 3,300 gallons of drinking water in case flooding contaminates wells or water systems.

Food bank officials say it's better to be proactive instead of reactive anytime there's a chance drinking water could become scarce.

"Maybe a city or a town will call us and say we need some drinking water, so we've gone ahead and started getting ready. Instead of waiting for the call, we're ready for the call," said Branch Director Jim Case.

Case is asking EMA officials to call Second Harvest if people in their counties need water.
