Governor Deal has expanded his emergency declaration to include fourteen counties in Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, following a recommendation from Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency.

“Today, Governor Deal expanded the State of Emergency Declaration to include Appling, Burke, Bulloch, Candler, Coffee, Effingham, Emanuel, Evans, Jenkins, Jeff Davis, Screven, Tattnall, Toombs, and Treutlen counties. Hurricane Irma is one of the strongest hurricanes on record—and for all in these communities, it is imperative that you prepare for this storm. I pray for the safety of everyone in Hurricane Irma’s path.”
