    - movement north-northeast or 25 degrees at 10 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the
south central Gulf of Mexico. Hermine is expected to drift north
and northeast toward the northwest Florida coast by Thursday
afternoon. There is some potential for the system to strengthen to
a hurricane before making landfall on the northwest Florida coast
late Thursday evening or early Friday morning. Tropical Storm
Hermine is expected to move across south Georgia on Friday.

Based on the latest forecast track, tropical storm force winds
will be possible just south of a line from Americus to Warner
Robins to Louisville beginning early Friday morning. A tropical
storm watch is now in effect for areas along and south of this
line. In addition to strong winds on Friday... there is also a
significant threat for flooding with some locations across central
Georgia receiving as much as 3 to 6 inches of rain through Friday
evening. These rainfall amounts will be capable of producing life
threatening flash flooding. The greatest flash flood threat will
be mainly east of a Cordele to Macon to Washington line where a
Flash Flood Watch is in effect.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
south and parts of central Georgia. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across south and parts of central Georgia.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across north and central Georgia. Potential impacts
include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
south and parts of central Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Elsewhere across north and central Georgia, little to no impact is
anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Evacuations: none.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Peachtree City GA around 5 am, or sooner if conditions
warrant.

      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across south and parts of central Georgia.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across north and central Georgia. Potential impacts
include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
south and parts of central Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Elsewhere across north and central Georgia, little to no impact is
anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Evacuations: none.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

and northeast toward the northwest Florida coast by Thursday
afternoon. There is some potential for the system to strengthen to
a hurricane before making landfall on the northwest Florida coast
late Thursday evening or early Friday morning. Tropical Storm
Hermine is expected to move across south Georgia on Friday.

Based on the latest forecast track, tropical storm force winds
will be possible just south of a line from Americus to Warner
Robins to Louisville beginning early Friday morning. A tropical
storm watch is now in effect for areas along and south of this
line. In addition to strong winds on Friday... there is also a
significant threat for flooding with some locations across central
Georgia receiving as much as 3 to 6 inches of rain through Friday
evening. These rainfall amounts will be capable of producing life
threatening flash flooding. The greatest flash flood threat will
be mainly east of a Cordele to Macon to Washington line where a
Flash Flood Watch is in effect.

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the
south central Gulf of Mexico. Hermine is expected to drift north
then northeast toward the northwest Florida coast by Thursday
afternoon. There is some potential for the system to strengthen to
a hurricane before making landfall on the northwest Florida coast
early Friday morning. Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to move
across south Georgia on Friday.

At this time based on the latest forecasts, south and parts of
central Georgia should prepare for the potential of tropical storm
winds beginning early Friday morning. There is also a significant
threat for flooding with some locations receiving as much as 3 to
6 inches of rain through Friday evening. This is capable of
producing life threatening flash flooding across the area.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind: prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant
impacts across south and parts central Georgia. Potential
impacts in this area include:

- some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile homes
damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
become dangerous projectiles.

- Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several fences
and roadway signs blown over.

- Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
routes impassable.

- Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across south and parts of central Georgia.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across north and central Georgia. Potential impacts
include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
south and parts of central Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Elsewhere across north and central Georgia, little to no impact is
anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations: none.

* Other preparedness information:

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: 2-4 inches, with locally higher
          amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations need not include a threat for
          tornadoes. Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty
          winds may still occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.

... Tropical storm watch in effect...

A tropical storm watch means tropical storm wind conditions are
possible somewhere within this area and within the next 48 hours

* locations affected
    - Dublin

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 60 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday evening
          until Friday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with
          damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few
          buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door
          failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.
          Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.
        - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
          numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
          fences and roadway signs blown over.
        - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within
          urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,
          and access routes impassable.
        - Scattered power and communications outages, but more
          prevalent in areas with above ground lines.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 2-4 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
