Georgia orders compulsory evacuation of coast as Irma roars closer

Florida isn't the only state preparing for Hurricane Irma.

Shortly after noon Thursday, Gov. Nathan Deal announced the mandatory evacuation of all areas of Glynn, Camden and McIntosh counties east of I-95 as of Saturday, along with some areas west of I-95 in Glynn and Camden counties. If he does order an evacuation, lanes on Interstate 26 and other evacuation routes would be reversed starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. Jones told a news conference Wednesday in Savannah that it's possible Irma could strike the Georgia coast early next week as a powerful Category 3 or 4 hurricane.

Cooper added that many North Carolinians still lack a permanent home after being displaced by Hurricane Matthew a year ago, and they will need to be cared for. The executive order also authorized up to 5,000 Georgia National Guard members to be on state active duty to support Hurricane Irma response and recovery. This includes all counties in the evacuation order, among others in southeastern Georgia.
