SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

Officials are not expecting much flooding up US 19 in Americus with the next round of rain expected to hit on Thursday.

The EMA director said he will continue to monitor forecasts, but does not expect problems from the Muckalee Creek.   

He does encourage residents to keep their eyes open. 

"We're lucky right now with the weather this warm, we're getting all this water in the ground evaporating up, so we're not expecting it to stick as much, but we still urge our residents to be mindful and if you know of areas that constantly do flood, keep an eye on them," said Sumter County EMA Director Nigel Poole.

Poole said one of the areas that floods most often is the Muckalee Creek near Millard Fuller Boulevard.
