LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County officials said they have sustained little damage from Alberto.

County officials explained there weren't any major problems with flooding and the dirt roads are in good shape because they prepared ahead of time.

Co-county Manager Mike Sistrunk said there were no reports of washouts on roads or flooded areas and they have their drain system to thank for that.

The county works closely with Public Works, local law enforcement agencies and fire and EMA officials to make sure they monitor the storm and have crews ready to send out as needed.

Lee County officials said they will continue to follow these procedures to stay ahead of the storms as hurricane season approaches. 

"Just keep on staying ahead of the game. There's going to be times where we have to go out and safe-up a road, especially if this rain keeps on like it's going," said Sistrunk.

Officials are keeping an eye on roads throughout the next few days with the chance of rain coming in.
