Residents prepare for more rain

DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -

Just last week water covered many yards and driveways and roads in east Dougherty County.      People there are hoping to avoid a repeat.     

Some folks on Jacqueline Drive were stuck in their homes.  The only way out of that short road is where it intersects with Springs Flats Road. One homeowner says he's concerned about the safety for his family.  

"One that nothing happens to my elderly mother, because in the event that something happens to her there's no way for anybody to even get up here to see about her or for us to get out to take her where she needs to go. The next thing is getting to work on time," said Walter Gordon.

Walter Gordon says he would like to see better drainage systems in the area near the Worth County line to reduce the chances of flooding.
