ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Neighbors gathered Sunday morning to check water levels at the point where the Muckalee and Kinchafoonee Creeks meet off Lovers Lane Road. By morning, the water had receded by more than one foot.  

Old timers like Charlie Black, who had lived in the area since 1965, put the equipment in his garage on blocks. 

"You've been through this so many times. That's right," said Black. "That's like my neighbor said, they was going to move out. No, I'm not going to move out. I'm going to stay with it.  And I did."

Catherine Tripp was seeing flooding threaten her home for the first time.

"Scared, hesitant. We're just watching the water to see what it's going to do," said Catherine Tripp.

Near the creek intersection on Robinson Court, Corey Gamble's home has water up to the door of the garage.

Residents call it a close call so far. It is advised to continue to watch the water this week before moving furniture back in.
