CEMA demobilizes Erika watch

Posted By on Sat, Aug 29, 2015 at 11:12 AM

Citing the dissipation of Erika, the Chatham Emergency Management Agency has demobilized its Emergency Operations Center and "has moved back to Normal Operations and Operating Condition (OPCON) 5," a spokesperson says.

OPCON 5 is the routine operating level of the CEMA EOC during hurricane season (June 1 – November 30) when there is no direct threat from a tropical cyclone, CEMA says.

"Remnants of Erika are expected to impact Chatham County Wednesday and could last through the weekend. Parts of the County will experience some flooding and 2-3 inches of rain," the spokesperson says.

"It is important to remember to avoid flooded roadways, as it only takes one foot of water to float most vehicles."
