Governor Deal has issued a state of emergency for a total of 30 counties including Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Glynn, Liberty, and McIntosh Counties.
“Ahead of Hurricane Irma, I’ve issued an executive order prohibiting price gouging and waiving rules and regulations for motor vehicles transporting supplies, equipment, personnel, goods, and services associated with disaster assistance and relief,” said Deal. “This state of emergency also ensures aid for the six counties potentially impacted by this catastrophic storm. We will continue monitoring Hurricane Irma’s path in the days ahead and coordinating with our federal, state and local partners. I urge Georgians in the affected counties to remain vigilant and be prepared.”
As additional storm updates and details come in, the Georgia Chamber will work to keep you informed every step of the way For more information on hurricane preparedness, visit the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency website here.
