Floodwaters came close but caused no damage to Jimmy Carter's home in Plains.
"He's high and dry," said Hugh Carter, the former president's cousin.Jimmy Carter was in Japan when heavy rains from the remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto caused creeks to flood in Plains.
The Kountry Korner cafe and the Peanut Gallery, a grocery store, were flooded in downtown Plains, but Carter's nearby home was untouched.
The peanut business once owned by the Carter family also was undamaged, Hugh Carter said, but some peanut fields could be flooded.
