Governor Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency for all 159 counties in Georgia. At this time, this only extends to suspending certain federal regulations regarding goods and services to assure that there is an uninterrupted supply chain. It also prevents price gouging and opens state resources to availability for counties.
Glynn County has been meeting internally to prepare for any impacts direct or indirect that we may receive locally.
Our partners at National Weather Service in Jacksonville, have been briefing with us regularly and we are passing that information on to you. We may see increased rain falls, higher wind activity and possible power outages throughout the area associated with the storm over the next several days.
There is a lot of speculation and debate on what the current path will be, please make sure you are using trusted news source when making any disaster plans. We here at Glynn county will only publish information from our time tested and trusted partners from US National Weather Service Jacksonville Florida and NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center. Please take the time to check that your supplies are up-to-date in the event of power outages and that you have a plan ready for you and your family.
