TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Tift County road crews are keeping an eye on Highway 41 South and other low lying areas as Alberto heads northward.

Watching these areas is a priority because of the chances of flooding.

Both the city of Tifton and Tift County have been in contact with the National Weather Service to track the storm and make adjustments based on its path.

With the few rain showers Tifton had on Monday and Sunday night, the EMA director said they will continue to keep the streets clear.

"They do this on a daily basis anyway, but we are more concentrated on some of our problem areas, the low lying areas and that's been a constant effort since the storm formed," said Tift County EMA Director Vickie Hickman.

The director said the crews are prepared and on standby, but they aren't anticipating much.
