Chairman Watson’s Statement on Hurricane Irma

September 7, 2017

As Georgia braces for Hurricane Irma to move through our state, we are urging all Georgians in the affected areas to take the necessary precautions to stay safe. If you are in the evacuation areas, please take the advice of Governor Deal and the emergency preparedness team and find shelter outside of the evacuation area.

We appreciate the efforts of our state leaders, first responders, National Guard, and volunteers to keep our citizens safe during this time of rapidly changing information. Please stay tuned to local media for the latest storm information and guidance.

To the people in the Caribbean, the South East, and here at home in Georgia, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
