Henry County has been placed under a Tropical Storm Warning. The biggest threat at this time will be the wind and rain. With this threat we are asking members of the community to secure loose items to reduce potential damage from flying debris. This includes trampolines, lawn furniture, toys, trash cans, and anything that could be carried away in the wind. Also anyone living in older mobile homes or weak structures are encouraged to seek alternative shelter through Monday. Several area churches are opening shelters to accommodate anyone needing a place to stay throughout the storm. At this time, most shelters are scheduled to begin taking residents at 4:00 PM. Please keep a close eye on the weather as this storm moves through the area. We are asking that no unnecessary travel be attempted beginning tomorrow afternoon as we expect to have trees down around the area as well as possible power lines. Considering the large area hurricane Irma is expected to affect, utility companies will be stretched thin causing roadway cleanup to be delayed and possibly unattended leaving County roads dangerous to travel on. We are also asking that anyone needing NON-EMERGENCY services, while the storm passes through the area, to call (334)585-3131 or (334)585-2221 for assistance. This will help keep 911 services available for EMERGENCY situations should they arise. Please take any necessary precaution to protect yourself, family, and property.
