Hurricane Irma Storm Update

 

The Madison County Board of County Commissioners declared a local state of emergency effective Wednesdayevening in preparation of Hurricane Irma.  While the storm is forecasted to turn a little more to the east, County staff are communicating constantly with state officials and closely watching the storm’s track.  Small changes in the storm’s direction can make a big difference in our protective actions.

 

Tropical storm force winds are expected in our area early Sunday morning and throughout the day.  Madison County Schools will be open tomorrow, Friday September 8, 2017. They will be closed Monday, September 11, 2017 and Tuesday September 12, 2017.

The Madison County Central School (MCCS) will open as a risk shelter and special needs on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 5:00 pm for people living in Madison County that need a safe place to ride out the storm. MCCS is the ONLY approved risk shelter in our county designed to withstand storm force winds. 

Madison County offices as well as the City of Madison, Town of Greenville and Town of Lee will be closed Monday. However, crews and essential personnel will be out responding as needed.   We are seeing an influx of evacuees from South Florida on several of the major roadways. It is recommended that you only travel if absolutely necessary. All motel rooms are full.  Campgrounds still have campsites available.

According to the Tallahassee National Weather Service, large amounts of rainfall are not expected for the Big Bend portion of the State.  They are predicting 3 to 5 inches at this time.  River flooding is not expected.
