The Dougherty County EMA director said that Albany will see the Flint River and creek levels rise again in the next couple of days. But he also said people shouldn't be worried.
The Flint River level this morning was at 13 feet and 7 inches.
Because of the large amount of rain, the Flint River is forecast to rise in the next couple of days and crest Sunday night around 22 feet.
That is an action stage, but nowhere near a minor flood stage. The EMA Director Ron Rowe said that he doesn't want people to be scared after the Christmas holiday flooding.
"That's about 11 feet less than where we were during the holidays. So when we are talking about flooding during this time, this rain event, that's not going to happen from the river," said Rowe.
That's in Dougherty County, with the Flint River, the creeks could reach a minor flood stage, but no Dougherty County homes are expected to be impacted.
