... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Brunswick
    - St. Simons
    - Country Club Estates
    - Dock Junction

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 50 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
          tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
          Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury, or in some
          cases loss of life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous
          wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: life-threatening storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 1-3 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: begins early Thursday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          dangerous storm surge flooding of greater than 3 feet above
          ground.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant storm surge flooding impacts. Evacuation
          efforts should now be brought to completion. Evacuations
          must be complete before driving conditions become unsafe.
        - Life threatening inundation is possible. Failure to heed
          evacuation orders may result in serious injury or loss of
          life. Leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.
          Consider voluntary evacuation if recommended. Poor
          decisions may needlessly risk lives.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated
          by waves. Storm surge may extend far inland along rivers
          and creeks and you may still experience flooding even
          though you are not along the immediate coast. If you are
          asked to evacuate it is because you are in, or near, an
          area that has been identified as being subject to storm
          surge, please heed the advice of emergency management
          officials! Damage to several buildings, mainly near the
          coast.
        - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads
          become weakened or washed out, especially in usually
          vulnerable low spots.
        - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes and
          beach access areas. Strong and numerous rip currents.
        - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
          Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially
          in unprotected anchorages.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 3-5 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 somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

    - 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 somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Brunswick
    - St. Simons
    - Country Club Estates
    - Dock Junction

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
          tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
          Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury, or in some
          cases loss of life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous
          wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 1-3 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: begins early Thursday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
          Marshes and estuaries will be fully flooded at high tide.
          Populated areas likely to flood include those threatened by
          flooding during strong northeasters or which have flooded
          during past tropical storms.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 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.
