Flint River flooding near cresting point in Albany


The Flint River in Albany is expected to crest soon.

Some low-lying roads in Albany and Dougherty County have water over them. 

The level on the Flint was 30.5-feet as of 6 p.m. Tuesday.

That's the point where the weather service predicts it will crest.

Officials say they are still watching cautiously.

"Still with the rain coming through, maybe some rain this week, it's probably going to prolong this event a little bit," said Albany Fire Chief Ron Rowe. "And so it's not going to recede as quickly as we would like, but it is going to go down pretty quick."

EMA officials urge people to stay out of any flooding water and not to drive through any standing water on the roads.
