Nearly all roads open in Crisp

Cordele — Crisp County's chief deputy, Col. Billy Hancock said Tuesday morning all Crisp roads except about three where no one lives are open. He commended Public Works Department Director Carl Gamble and his staff for keeping the roads in good shape prior to the recent rainfall.

There are some washes in the roads. On others, officials are advising that only local traffic travel there. Since Friday morning, between nine and 10 inches of rain have fallen in parts of the county.

All the rain should be over now, Hancock said, and it will be a wind event now with 20 to 25 mile per hour sustained winds predicted by this afternoon.

Because the ground is so saturated with water, he expects more trees to fall. Already, Hancock said, he knows about five trees have fallen in the county.

A flash flood watch remains in effect until noon today in the area as well.
