In the last two months almost a foot and a half of rain has fallen in the Shoals area, and one road is still closed because of all the rain.
E 6th Street and Fennell Road in Leighton is still underwater. Emergency management officials told WAAY 31 they are worried Tuesday night's storms could cause more problems.
Colbert County EMA Director, Mike Melton, said he's concerned because the ground is so saturated with water a big wind could come and knock trees down.
Tree cutting businesses in the Shoals have been busy the last couple of weeks, because of the weather.
"We've had tons of rain and when you get big winds behind lots of rain that's when you have tree problems," said Lee Cosbie, the owner of Affordable Tree Service in Colbert County.
Cosbie and his crew were busy cutting about six trees away from Victor Daniel's home on Evergreen Court Tuesday. Daniel said he was concerned about the past rain and future storms. He felt like it was better to be safe than sorry.
"I wanted to get those trees cut out before anything falls on the house," said Daniel. "With high winds it could fall on your house and with children in the house you don't want that to happen, so prevent it before it happens."
Emergency management, road crews, and utility crews in the Shoals are prepared to respond to any downed power lines or trees, if Tuesday night's weather gets rough.
