Hurricane Idalia Update/Office Closure Protocol

Governor Brian P. Kemp today issued a State of Emergency order for all of Georgia in preparation for Hurricane Idalia’s anticipated impact later this week. Currently, the storm system is expected to move through the state on Wednesday, bringing heavy rainfall and damaging winds throughout Southeast Georgia. The State of Emergency went into effect today, August 29, and will expire at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 8, 2023.

Please take a minute to review the state’s Inclement Weather Policy, including where to find out about state office closures. You might also want to review the State’s recent advisory on absences due to emergency closures.

Governor Kemp urges all Georgians to remain weather alert and to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families. Those directly impacted by the storm’s path are encouraged to consult GEMA/HS’ informational website, which includes tips on storm preparedness before, during, and after a hurricane.
