Houston County 911 gets busy as Irma winds pick up
Mayor Randy Toms has issued a curfew for the city from 6 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
The city is experiencing downed trees, power lines and outages, according to Warner Robins police social media posts.
“Please remember over 37,000 people in Warner Robins are without power leaving several intersections within the city without operable traffic signals,” one Warner Robins police Facebook post said. “This was one of the main reasons for the city-wide curfew.
“For your safety, unless it is an emergency, you're going to the hospital or ER, or you are a first responder please refrain from using the roadways,” the post said.
Peach County is also under a curfew until 6 a.m.
“Many roads are impassable, there are multiple power lines down and power poles down,” Peach County EMA Director Jeff Doles said in a news release. “It is very dangerous to travel in Peach County at this time.”
Dooly County’s curfew is set to end at noon Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Macon-Bibb County EMA says worst of Irma now underway for Middle Georgia.
