| January 19, 2016


BERRIEN CO. – After a group of campers were rescued Sunday morning, officials in Berrien County are asking residents to be mindful of the rising Alapaha River.

Deputies with the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office, emergency personnel and the Department of Natural Resources rescued four campers Sunday at approximately 11 a.m. after their campsite was surrounded by high water.

Sheriff Anthony Heath told WALB the water had risen so much that deputies were walking chest-deep in water in areas that can normally be driven through.

Heath is asking anyone who wants to explore areas around the river to do so with caution over the next few days.
