Hurricane Irma marches northward through Florida and will be approaching the SW Georgia border this afternoon, probably a Tropical Storm by then. By evening it will be near the Alabama/Georgia line as a weakening Tropical storm. Tropical Storm Warning in effect. On this video I’ll update you on what we can expect as far wind potential and rainfall and the timetable. Tress and powerlines could cause power outages. The best way to stay updated throughout the day is with our Weather App for the latest watches and warnings. Please watch this special video update, and feel free to share it. Lots of good info here.
