ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Lee County Emergency Management Agency is continuing to rescue several families that are trapped in their homes on Creekside Place.

Officials are waiting for a five ton military truck to rescue those who cannot get out due to the flooding along the Kinchafoonee Creek.

EMA officials are still not sure how many homes have water in them. Their main focus is making sure everyone in the flood zone is safe.

The Kinchafoonee Creek crested at Pinewood Road gauge Friday night at 21 feet. The water levels on the creek in the southern end of Lee County should crest later Saturday night or sometime Sunday.
