Press release –
The Glynn County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency would like to advise area residents and visitors that Glynn County currently falls within the National Weather Service’s “Cone of Uncertainty” for Hurricane Irma. At this time, there are several variables influencing the track, guidance, and development of this system. It is important to closely monitor this storm over the next couple of days until the models come into closer agreement. We will continue to monitor and provide updates as needed.
At this time, there are no evacuations scheduled for Glynn County. Everyone is encouraged to begin reviewing plans and making arrangements now should our area be impacted in any way. Likely impacts will be coastal flooding, heavy rainfall, and damaging winds. Current weather conditions are being caused by a nor’easter off the coast that will bring soaking rains prior impacts felt by Hurricane Irma.
Area residents are encouraged to register for the County’s Code Red system on the County’s website: www.glynncounty.org (the link is at the bottom of the page) to receive alert messaging. We would encourage that you register your cell phone so you can receive alerts when you are away from home.
