Restaurant prepares for rising Ogeechee River

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The rising Ogeechee River is raising concerns for businesses like Love's Seafood. The water is almost all the way up to the door of their storage shed.

The owner, John Love, spent Tuesday moving restaurant equipment that he had stored in the shed to high ground. In the past, the river has risen high enough to flood out the entire building and damage the equipment inside.

"I am trying to get stuff out of the water to be prepared in case the river gets any worse than it already is," said Love. "We've had a lot of rain and I have seen it get real bad in the past. I am trying to put some stuff up to keep it from being ruined."

The river is expected to continue to rise the next couple of days. Love says he will keep the equipment up on a platform for protection.
