Flood concerns: More from the Muckalee

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Experts now say they need to revisit Lee County after higher flood levels on the Muckalee Creek brought new concerns.

Muckalee means "Pour Upon Me", a suitable name for a creek that did indeed pour over its banks during Christmas, flooding yards and even a few homes where people didn't expect a 15 foot crest to be a problem.

Now, the Muckalee is getting the attention of national scientists, looking for an explanation of this new flood ground.

Now, scientists are using advanced technology to learn more about the creek that flows through Lee County and what they can expect in the future.
