Bibb commissioners discussed the effects hurricane Irma could have on Bibb County at Tuesday evening's council meeting.

Bibb EMA Director, Spencer Hawkins, spoke to commissioners about what they need to do in order to prepare people in their districts.

Hawkins says they have been in touch with county departments to make sure everyone has plans in place because they are expecting refugees and possible storms to hit Macon.

“If we get the storm that hits just the right tract that goes over the panhandle of Florida and keeps up its intensity, we could be dealing with serious weather here in Macon-Bibb by next week,” says Hawkins.

Hawkins says the EMA is meeting Wednesday to discuss how they plan to prepare.
