CRISP CO., GA (WALB) -

Officials are urging drivers to use caution as rain continues to fall. Several roads in the county are susceptible to having standing water on them.

The sheriff wants drivers to slow down, take extra time, and avoid going over roads covered in water.

“You don't know if that water is swift enough that it'll take your car off to the side and put you in the drainage ditch or the river or creek that your crossing over,” said Sheriff Billy Hancock.

Sheriff Hancock said the county is expecting between 2 and 4 inches of rain before the rain stops.
