Hurricane Michael is making landfall in the Florida Panhandle now, and will be felt in Peachtree City through the night with wind gusts of 40+ miles per hour, bands of heavy rainfall, and the potential for falling trees and power outages. Two to three inches of rain are expected, and despite recent dry weather, localized flooding may occur.
City crews are already responding to calls for downed trees and limbs, so we may be in for a long night. The City will have a crew on duty overnight to address downed trees blocking roadways. Any path blockages will be addressed after daylight tomorrow and once roadways are clear.
Reminders:• DO NOT DRIVE into areas of roadways or paths that covered by water. • Keep up with changing weather conditions -- the National Weather Service may upgrade Fayette County to a Tropical Storm Warning if the storm track changes. • If we are placed under a Tornado Warning or you hear the Fayette County Severe Weather Sirens, take shelter from potential tornadoes. • Report downed trees blocking roadways by calling 9-1-1 immediately. • Report downed trees blocking paths on THURSDAY by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Above all, stay safe!* * * * * * *
