Lee County makes storm preps

Posted: Updated:
LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County crews spent Tuesday making sure they're ready for potential flooding.

Workers were directing traffic on Lovers Lane Road as crews cleaned debris from ditches to prevent any water from building up and going onto the road.

Crews say it's common for leaves and tree limbs to clog up the pipes.

"They said it could be some heavy thunderstorms and the other day, we got 4.2 inches of rain in one hour, so you get that kind of rainfall, it's catastrophic anyway," said crew leader Roy Piercey.

Authorities encourage drivers to slow down and be aware of their surroundings when it's raining.
