TUCKER, Ga. (September 8, 2017) – Officials with the City of Tucker are working with leaders from DeKalb County in coordinating a response to potential power outages and flooding triggered by Hurricane Irma.
With the Category Four storm still three days out from impacting the Metro Atlanta area, its course is very unpredictable, according to officials with the National Weather Service. As of midday Friday, they estimated areas east of Atlanta, including Tucker, could see between two and four inches of rainfall on Monday and Tuesday. There could also be wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour, sparking concerns over falling trees and power lines.
The City of Tucker will be updating its website and social media channels to keep residents informed about the storm throughout the weekend and into early next week. One particular item that City leaders are keeping an eye on is Monday night’s City Council meeting. The 7 o’clock meeting is still scheduled to happen at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue). If flooding or power outages necessitate a postponement, that would be posted immediately at www.tuckerga.gov.
