As the forecasted track for Tropical Storm Laura continues to shift westward, it is unlikely to have significant impacts on Camden County. With Laura’s current forecast, the greatest threat locally is for a higher risk of rip currents. Local officials, as part of the Executive Policy Group, working with the Camden County Emergency Management Agency continue to monitor tropical activity.
Camden County citizens are urged to take time now, while a storm is not threatening our community, to prepare for possible tropical activity. This hurricane season continues to be very active and we have yet to reach the busiest part of the season. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) ready.gov website share information about preparing an emergency plan and building an emergency kit.
As we continue hurricane season, local residents are encouraged to sign-up for the CodeRED Emergency Notification System by visiting www.camdencountyga.gov/CodeRED or texting “CamdenCodeRED” to 99411. CodeRED is a direct method of communication from Camden County EMA to your landline, cell phone, or email. TDD/TTY service is also available. Participants will be notified in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts.
