People in Elba have been keeping an eye on the Pea River as it steadily rises.
As of Monday afternoon, the river was at nearly 16 feet.
People have been stopping by the levee to check the river's level and waiting on city officials to give the word if things get worse.
"The National Weather Service tells us that we expect a crest of about 30.9 feet Tuesday morning at about six or seven o'clock, said Jack Mullinax, the city manager. "If that's it, we're not expecting any more trouble."
Mullinax said the city will start to see flooding if the river reaches 35 feet.
"Some of the outlying areas are the areas that get the trouble first. We don't have any problems until about 40 feet there inside the levee," said Mullinax. Of course that is providing the levee doesn't break, and we don't expect that."
