ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Emergency management agency workers are still determining how many homes were flooded along the Kinchafoonee Creek.

The main thing residents living near the Kinchafoonee need to know for the night is that rain is expected on Monday. Fortunately, the National Weather Service believes that the water will not rise. 

Water was still rushing near Kinchafoonee Creek as crews assessed the damage of each home. Crews were also in the skies documenting the damage done along the creek during the weekend to send to the Georgia Emergency Management Agency.    

Flood points are higher, closer to the Kinchafoonee. Not all houses had water hitting their front porch. 

One man said that the water for the most part was below his home. His main concern was if his well would be contaminated.

While the man was fine, a family needed help being rescued from the flood zone. The woman, grandson, and daughter were eventually rescued. She told the firefighter trying to rescue her that she is going to stay with her cats. 

A line of cars awaited as people stood by, desperately wanting to know if their homes had water or are still dry. Residents need to know that Lee Co. 

Management will not have a final count of how many homes are damaged until Monday.
