Camden County Declares State of Emergency

The Camden County Board of Commissioners has issued a State of Emergency for Camden County. Hurricane Dorian requires extraordinary and immediate proactive measures for the protection of the health and safety of the citizens of Camden County.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts Hurricane Dorian will be dangerously close to the Southeastern Region of the State of Georgia and will possibly produce excessive rainfall, damaging winds, and flooding in Camden County.

This State of Emergency Declaration shall remain in effect until rescinded.

Please continue to monitor the progress of the hurricane through the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. Regular updates will also be posted to the Camden County EMA social media pages and on the County website at www.camdencountyga.gov.
