I just want to take a minute and give a huge shout out to our amazing public safety departments in Telfair and Wheeler counties. Some full time,some part time, some volunteer. No matter the hour, our the day. These people respond without hesitation. Last night (most will not know) Steve Adams along with myself got a very different and rare text msg. It stated that there was a distress becon coming from or in the area of our great little telfair/wheeler airport. Not to prolong the story anymore Steve and myself responded and coordinated a response to this issue. Our amazing first responders ( all agency's don't want to miss somebody) responded without hesitation. Several state agency's also were involved. We also had the help from "Jimmy ray" Barry "Brian Screws" "Jake Boney" and several other pilots showed up. It was great to have that knowledge by our side. Long story short the becon cleared itself. We as a group were given all clear from the FAA and Air Force Rescue Communication Center. SO with that being said, THANK YOU to the responders. Your sacfrice does not go unnoticed.
Lee Conner TCEMA DIRECTOR.

Hurricane Sally officially made landfall at 5:45 AM this morning near Gulf Shores, Alabama as a category 2 hurricane. It will weaken to tropical storm status tonight and tropical depression status by tomorrow morning as it moves into Georgia. Heavy and persistent rainfall is still expected in North and Central Georgia beginning today and continuing through Friday. However, forecast rainfall totals have decreased since yesterday. 3 to 6 inches of rainfall are now expected in much of North and Central Georgia between tonight and Friday night. Flash flooding and river flooding are still expected where the heaviest rainfall occurs, and a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for most of North and Central Georgia. Several Flash Flood Warnings remain likely in North and Central Georgia on Thursday and Friday as the storm moves through. Any flooding issues will likely continue even after the storm moves out, and river flooding in particular could linger through the weekend into early next week. A few tornadoes are also possible in South Georgia tonight and tomorrow morning. Saturated grounds coupled with 20-30 mph wind gusts will likely bring trees down in North and Central Georgia as well. After the remnants of Sally move out of Georgia on Friday, the weekend and early next week will be sunny, cool, and fall-like.

If you see this going around, rest assured that it is FALSE. There is NO national quarantine and that is NOT the purpose of the Stafford Act. We promise.

So to answers a question about the local state of emergency. We felt it was in our (Telfair County) best interest to get ahead of the covid19 virus. The declaration allows us to first in act the emergency operation plan. Two to allow us to request help from the state and federal levels with out this we can not. Third we our following suit from the state to keep goods from being tremendously overcharged locally. If you take a look at the map below. We are surrounded, if this pandemic does not concern you to some extent, it should. There are more ordinances that can be and may be put into place at some point to help stop the spread and protect the the citizen from the covid 19 virus. Please as a citizen of Telfair County have a Team mindset. Always the TEAM comes before me. We have to follow the advice from the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, CDC, AND DPH. Lets be TELFAIR STRONG.

Thank you Joseph Suddarth for encouraging words tonight in this crazy storm. Friends pls Heed these words. I honestly feel this way a lot as an emergency manager, but so much credit goes to the incredible men and women that help in our (Telfair County)time of need. Thank you all.

"And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about."―Haruki Murakam

I have a question and I need an honest answer, please. Are there truly no cases of this virus in Telfair county, or are we one of the counties that isn't testing many people? If it's the latter, why aren't we testing? Not trying to be a smarty pants, just really needing an honest answer. Staying at home, trying to do our part.
