  • South Carolina governor declares state of emergency for Irma

"This is a rapidly moving hurricane and the weather and the consequences of that hurricane can change dramatically within a relatively short period of time". Parts of the coastal Georgia island suffered from Tropical Storm Irma. While the company has contacted and requested aid through the mutual assistance network, resources have been assigned to harder-hit areas in Florida first before travelling to Georgia.

Hurricane Irma was roughly 50 miles southeast of Tampa at 11 p.m. Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center, but it was close enough to Glynn County for the Golden Isles to begin feeling its true power. Georgia Power is also able to tap into reinforcements when needed to restore power quickly to Georgia customers.

Acting on a recommendation from the state's Emergency Operations Command and ahead of heavy rains, strong wind and potential flooding from Hurricane Irma, Gov. Nathan Deal today expanded the emergency declaration to include an additional 65 counties.

"With the current track, Nash County's impact appears to be minimum - but be aware the track could shift and our impact could definitely change", said Brent Fisher, assistant director of Nash County Fire & Rescue Services/Emergency Management.

Watch for downed wires. Tropical storm winds reached more than 400 miles (645 kilometers) from the storm's center, toppling trees that crashed onto homes and power lines across a large inland area. Please be mindful of the safety of officers and crews working on roadways. If driving, move over one lane for utility vehicles stopped on the side of the road - it's the law in Georgia. As part of this partnership, Georgia Power line crews provide assistance to other utilities when service to their customers is interrupted due to severe weather and have travelled as far away as NY to assist with restoration following Superstorm Sandy and New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Family Services is supported by employee volunteers who are not involved with storm restoration.
