Rep. Loudermilk urges all Georgians to be prepared and aware of instructions from federal, state, and local officials as Hurricane Irma approaches:
 
“September is National Preparedness Month. As we have seen with Hurricane Harvey and now with Hurricane Irma, planning before an event happens has never been more important. Our office has reached out to our local Emergency Management Agencies, and they all shared the same message: be alert and be prepared. While Hurricane Irma’s path is not certain, we must prepare as circumstances change quickly. Pay attention and heed the warnings of the officials. 
 
“Governor Deal has declared a state of emergency for Georgia's coastal counties and he will be holding a press conference at 10:00 am tomorrow,  9/8/17, to discuss Georgia’s response to Hurricane Irma. You can watch live HERE.
 
“Make sure to fill up your gas tank and have food and water on hand. Traffic will increase as evacuees from coastal Georgia and Florida move inland. Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted, and the military personnel and first responders working to keep everyone safe. You can find more information on how to prepare for and respond to a hurricane here: http://ready.ga.gov/be-informed/hurricanes/ or download the Ready Georgia mobile app. Monitor local news radio and television for up to date information. And, as always, we are here to help you."
