ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany EMA officials say that the level of the Flint River is holding steady for now, and they are keeping their eyes on how much more rain may fall in the next couple of days.

At 10:30AM Tuesday, the level stood at thirty feet, half a foot below their Monday anticipated crest of 30.7 feet. The Flint is up half a foot since Monday.

AFD Chief Ron Rowe says that they are not finding ponding of low streets, and water is draining in a natural way, flowing down stream. While Public Works has closed Skywater and Azalea at Radium Springs, Front Street from West Whitney Avenue to Mercer Avenue was closed Tuesday morning. Only the very short Barbre Lane has needed to be closed otherwise.

Veterans Park, between the river and the Albany Civic Center, is under water for now, which is not unusual when a huge rain falls.
