Sumter County has issued a mandatory curfew from 5PM to 9AM.
It is recommended that if you have family members that lives North of Macon that you may want to seek shelter with them. THIS IS NOT A MANDATORY EVACUATION.
We have been upgraded from a Tropical Storm Watch to a Hurricane Watch. This means that we can anticipate stronger winds and more rain. We are anticipating many trees down, many trees on houses, and wide-spread power outages.
We will be opening a shelter at First Baptist Church located at 221 S Lee St. Americus. This shelter is intended for our homeless population and those that live in mobile homes that are not safe.
