Before Hurricane Florence, Georgia gov. explains the state of emergency for all provinces – Curbed Atlanta

Another September and another major hurricane in the interior of Atlanta.

Jeff Byard, associate administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Wednesday that hurricane Florence "will throw a stump from Mike Tyson to the coast of Carolina," and Georgia is also feeling rainfall.

Of course, places such as Myrtle Beach will probably be the brunt of the storm, which could brew a category 4 hurricane, but Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal wasted no time preparing the Peach state for possible bad weather.

The governor issued an executive order on Wednesday declaring a state of emergency for all 159 counties of Georgia.

"The state mobilizes all available resources to ensure public safety for Hurricane Florence," Deal said in a press release.

"In light of the predicted southward course of the storm after landing the storm, I encourage the Georgians to be prepared for the domestic effects of the storm and the subsequent storm surge in coastal areas," he continued.
