ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Pumps continue to run in Dougherty County after heavy rains overnight.

The county is pumping out holding ponds to make sure overflow doesn't cause flooding in any neighborhoods.

The pumps are running on Countryside Drive, Pine Bluff Road, Mockingbird Drive, and Antioch Road.

"They want to lower those retentions down, and get ready for the next event. Which we don't know when," said Assistant Public Works Director Chucky Mathis. "So if it happens to come next week or the end of this week, we're trying to be prepared for that."

DCPW reports Albany received about an inch or rain and there have been no reports of damage or roads closing.
