Emergency Services reminds residents to be prepared in hurricane season

Irma evacuees find full hotels but a warm welcome in Georgia

The campaign also reflects the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) decision to separate the association of storm surge inundation from the category of storm.

Georgia is bracing for potentially far-flung impacts from Hurricane Irma, which could swamp the coast with storm surge and topple trees and power lines in Atlanta.

Maximum sustained winds of 185 miles per hour make it more intense than even catastrophic storms like Andrew and Katrina, and the pressure remains at 918 mb.

According to the latest forecast, the SC coast is now less likely to take a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. But western parts of the state are still in Monday's forecast cone as Irma diminishes from a hurricane to a tropical depression.

Curry declared a State of Emergency Monday for Duval County.

"Don't go two or three days without paying attention", he said, "and when it comes time to act, make sure you're relying on credible information".

Although a direct hit on the Golden Isles looks less likely than it did earlier this week, Glynn County emergency officials stress that the combination of Irma and a nor'easter forecast to settle in Sunday will cause a unsafe storm surge, high winds and a large amount of rain.

"I would encourage people to move to an area they feel safe", he said.

In addition to the waiving of motor vehicle regulations, Troxler stated in a press release that the Agriculture department is temporarily suspending health certificate requirements on livestock traveling through the state from areas in Hurricane Irma's path.

"I don't know if it's going to do a lot of damage, but I'm not going to wait around to see", Johnson said.

Leaders at Joint Base Charleston say they are monitoring the approaching Hurricane Irma and are reviewing checklists of storm preparations.

Joe Dinatale, who was waiting with his rescue dog Biscuit, said he chose to leave town after evacuating for Hurricane Matthew a year ago.

SC still faces the threat of potential significant coastal flooding from storm surge, strong winds, heavy rain, and tornadoes beginning late Sunday through early Tuesday. If you plan to evacuate to a shelter, please be prepared to bring your own blankets, pillows, cots and any special foods if you are on a restricted diet. Coastal Georgia is under a hurricane watch.
