The Georgia Emergency Management Agency's website, gema.ga.gov. says residents who live along the coast, close to a river or an island waterway should stay alert for evacuation instructions in the event of a tropical storm. Mobile homes and high-rise buildings are especially at risk when high winds are expected.
The map on this page shows the location of potential Georgia evacuation zones. Updated information about evacuation routes is available on the Georgia DOT hurricane page. In the event of an evacuation, local radio stations, including Georgia Public Broadcasting stations, will offer latest updates.
