You Need Good Roads for Evacuations


RR090419 hurricaneAug. 4, 2019 – Need a good argument for safe and efficient roads? Millions in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas are facing evacuation orders ahead of Hurricane Dorian's possible landfall in the Southeastern United States. The storm, which has been downgraded to a Category 2, is continuing north after ripping through the Bahamas over Labor Day weekend. In Georgia, evacuation plans are in place for roughly 300,000 people living east of Interstate 95. Early Tuesday, the state's I-16 became a one-way evacuation route for those fleeing Dorian. Mandatory evacuation orders issued by Gov. Brian Kemp went into effect for the coastal counties of Glynn, Chatham, Liberty, McIntosh, Bryan, and Camden counties as of 12 p.m. Monday. Dorian is expected to travel up to Georgia Wednesday night into Thursday. Residents along the state's coast are bracing for heavy rains, strong winds and storm surge from the slow-moving storm.
