Flint River now starting to crest

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Flint River has finally crested in Albany, which is good news for those who live nearby. This afternoon, the Flint River crested at 32.15 feet. 

Dougherty County EMA Director Ron Rowe said this is a good sign because the focus is now only on the flood waters receding. 

He says the dry weather for the next few days will be helpful. 

"This front has moved through pushed all the rain south of us," said Director Rowe. "It's moving on through getting everything cleared out and give us a dry spell here to help us get this water down."

Rowe says they are continuing to monitor areas affected by the flood.
