Macon Bibb County leaders held a news conference Friday to address the area's state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Irma.
Overnight models have shifted Irma further west, so that means Irma could bring a bigger impact across Central Georgia if this forecast holds true from the National Hurricane Center.
The latest track from the National Hurricane Center has Irma moving into South Florida as a Category 4 hurricane. It then weakens the storm as it moves over Florida and pushes into South and Central Georgia by Monday afternoon and evening.
