Highway 257 remains open, but there are stretches with standing water and motorists need to be especially careful as they take it, according to Kelly.

Georgia 511 also reports flooding on State Road 26 in downtown Cochran and State Road 230 at Blazing Pine Drive between Unadilla and Hawkinsville.

A heads up if your commute takes you through Twiggs County, this includes a route commuters take for Robins Air Force Base.

The Georgia Department of Transportation says flooding and a downed tree has blocked all lanes of Georgia 358 between State Route 96 and U.S. Highway 80

Colonel James Faulk with the Twiggs County Sheriff's Office says deputies monitoring the scene see trees and powerlines down, and they're concerned part of the highway may wash out. 

Exit ramps from I-16 are closed. 

Faulk suggests taking exit 24 and using Highway 96 as an alternate, but warns base commuters need to give themselves extra time.
