Rain water backs up in Albany

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The rain has fallen so fast that the water can't drain away fast enough to prevent minor street flooding.

Public Works crews made preparations for the heavy rain a few days ago, but sometimes Mother Nature just wins the battle. 

A deluge of rain this morning has cause a water backup at the intersection of Eugemar Drive and West Second Avenue Wednesday morning.

The City of Albany purchased and demolished some houses in the area because of chronic flooding several years ago, and converted it to green space.
