As Tropical Storm Andrea made its way across Florida on Thursday afternoon, Liberty County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Hodges said Coastal Georgia residents needed to prepare for excessive wind and rain into Friday morning. The storm carries with it the possibility of up to 5 inches of rain, 60 mph wind gusts, isolated tornadoes and some high surf.

“There is still some uncertainty in the exact track and structure of the storm as it crosses near the South Carolina and Georgia coasts Thursday night,” Hodges said by email. “The further inland the storm goes, the greater the threat of impacts. If the storm only skirts the coast or remains just offshore, the impacts will be much less over land.”
