A weather system that appears ready to dump a lot of rain on southeast Georgia and northeast Florida could be a good thing for Ware County, said Ware County Emergency Management Agency director Jonathan Daniell.
The Satilla River is at an extremely low level, Daniell said, and the rain could be a good thing to bring water levels back up.
“I think as far as I can tell right now that it is going to be a rain event for us and not much more,” said Daniell. “I have a conference call today at noon and we’ll get the latest information at that time. As far as wind is concerned, we don’t have that trajectory yet.”
Daniell said it appears to be set in its path to enter the state of Florida at “the crook” but at this point, he said, “I really don’t see any severe weather for Ware County. Of course that could change. But a rain event could be a good thing as far as that goes.”
Daniell encourages everyone to remain vigilant and stay tuned to weather sources to make sure they get the latest news about all of the systems that are threatening the inland areas.
“Our main thing is that we want everyone to be safe,” said Daniell.
At the present time, no shelters are set to be open in Ware County.
For any severe weather or any damage or any injuries that may occur, Daniell encourages everyone to contact law enforcement officials to make those reports.
