Neighbors angry at bystanders blocking rescue vehicles

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lots of people in Lee County stopped by to see just how high the waters were rising along the Kinchafoonee Creek.

Residents living along Creekside Road were upset because some of the cars ended up blocking emergency vehicles trying to get through and help. Neighbors started directing traffic and asking people to park in a nearby ditch so they would be out of the way.

One woman described it as a circus. 

"People sight seeing just driving back and forth, back and forth and it's kind of," said Nancy Leffler. "It's uneasy feeling because I know what everyone here is going through, and I feel that people are just coming here just to look."

The creek crested last night where its measured at Pinewood Road, and is reaching it's third highest level ever. The worst may just be hitting now in southern Lee County.
