Awareness Statement #1 – Tropical Storm Erika

Tropical Storm Erika has officially formed and appears more concerning to the Southeast than it did yesterday. It will very likely become a hurricane in the next few days. Some models have it becoming a major hurricane over the weekend. It will likely approach the Southeast coast on Sunday and Monday. While most models have it turning northward and away from the Southeast, there is enough uncertainty to warrant concerns about Erika impacting Georgia.

Request each of you review your hurricane plans / decision timelines and initiate those preliminary discussions and activities deemed appropriate to insure we are postured for an effective response as the situation develops.

The SOC (State Operations Center) will continue monitoring this closely and will communicate with each of you accordingly.
