GEMA’s hurricane guide has lots of useful information

As of yesterday, we have already had ten named storms in the Atlantic, and the latest seasonal forecast says we can expect another 10-12 more named storms. Even if only a couple of them hit near Georgia, they could be devastating. So now is a great time to take advantage of the temporary lull in storms to get ready, if you have not already. The Georgia Emergency Management Agency has a great publication with a lot of useful information about what to do before, during, and after a storm. It also includes storm surge maps for the Georgia coast and information on their Ready Georgia App, which is one of the few apps that I recommend for use during hurricanes. You can find it at

If you are in a different state, your state emergency management agency probably has a lot of useful information too. You can search the FEMA web site for your location at
