Idalia to arrive Wednesday afternoon, officials urge to signup for CodeRED

Aug. 30—Hurricane Idalia is in Florida and heading toward the Golden Isles where it is expected to bring tropical-storm-force winds and hurricane-force gusts Wednesday afternoon.

The storm's path has shifted slightly to the north, Glynn County's Emergency Management Agency director Andy Leanza said at a 9 a.m. briefing at the county's Emergency Operations Center. He told the storm response team that power outages and some storm damage had already occurred locally and that those impacts are only expected to intensify throughout Wednesday.
