ABBEVILLE, GA (WALB) - Law Enforcers in Wilcox County today made sure people who live around Half Moon Landing evacuated.
Water from the Ocumulgee River covered part of the road, so officials closed it.
One resident who lives a few blocks away says she was shocked by what she saw.

"I was just shocked that this is happening around the holidays and I was just shocked it happened this close to home," said Tiffany Tisdol, Resident.

Flood stage on the Ocumulgee in Abbeville is 12 feet.
It's expected to rise another foot and a half to two feet and crest around 18 and a half feet Friday afternoon.
