Gulf Co. Prepares for Hurricane Irma; Declares Emergency

Fear and Loading Don't Panic Prepare

Jones told a news conference Wednesday in Savannah that it's possible Irma could strike the Georgia coast early next week as a powerful Category 3 or 4 hurricane.

S.C. Adjutant General Bob Livingston said he is preparing for a Category 4 storm, though forecasts say Irma should be weaker than that when it arrives in SC.

Deal also issued a mandatory evacuation order for all areas east of I-95, all of Chatham County and some areas west of I-95 that could be impacted by potential storm surge from Hurricane Irma. With the memories of flooding and damage from last year's Hurricane Matthew still on the minds of so many, officials had little problem stirring residents to action.

Georgia's governor is joining other states in doubling down on evacuation orders.

Analysts say that could lead to a contentious battle over whether the electoral commission should be allowed to oversee the revote.

McMaster also ordered health care facilities along the coast to begin evacuations effective Thursday at 2 p.m. This includes all counties in the evacuation order, among others in southeastern Georgia. The powerful storm, now at Category 5, is expected to reach SC late Monday.

As Hurricane Irma bears down on the Caribbean and Florida, the governors of both North Carolina and SC have declared states of emergency.

Sharp said models have been inconsistent as to when and where the hurricane will turn north and that people in the Piedmont should be paying attention to the storm this weekend and preparing as necessary.
