In times of need and disasters, you have questions. Fortunately, most answers can be found on the web. Here are answers to frequently asked questions and resources for those seeking answers.
There's a hurricane coming. What do I need to do?
Thanks to GEMA (Georgia Emergency Management Association), they've put together a guide for what to do. See their expansive list here.
What if I'm concerned about flooding in my area or around my neighborhood?
First, know your area’s flood risk – if unsure, call the Bulloch County EMA at 912-489-1661 or planning and zoning department, or visit floodsmart.gov.
After the rain, stay safe. Don't drive unless you have to and stay in elevated areas. Read more information and tips here.
What about Tornadoes? What's a watch versus a warning?
Most tornado damage is caused by violent winds. Many injuries and deaths result from flying debris. When a tornado threatens, your immediate action can save your life.
Tornado Watch: Conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential of tornadoes.
Tornado Warning: Tornado has been sighted or detected on radar. TAKE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY.
What if I lose power?
Losing power is never fun. Check the Georgia Power or Excelsior EMC websites to see power outages and estimated restoration times. In the meantime, stay patient. Crews are working as hard and as fast as they can.
