Potential for Flooding Remains

In Clarke County, the Chickasawhay River has already gone above its banks, and it's expected to crest around noon Wednesday.

Local officials say they're watching the waters very closely, and people who live in low lying areas near the river need to do the same.

"Take necessary precautions and get out, because you know, it doesn't take much of a running stream of water to cause some damage. I've seen people try to put canoes in and boats in and stuff like that, which is very dangerous. I don't recommend that at all," said Kemp. "We'll just have to watch and see what happens. I don't think we had enough rainfall to have a catastrophic flood, but we will have some minor problems from county line to county line."

Forecasts now call for flooding near the river. There are a few homes in that area.
