ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Florida panhandle and other parts of the Gulf Coast are bracing for tropical storm Ida.
Monday morning, Ida was still more than 200 miles away from Pensacola Beach, Florida. However, tropical storm warnings and watches remain in effect around the gulf coast.
Schools in one Alabama county near the Alabama-Florida line were closed Monday morning and a shelter was opened. Officials are also urging evacuations in low-lying areas near the Alabama Gulf Coast.
The Albany Public Works department is preparing for Tuesday's wind and rain. Jet vac trucks are cleaning out sewer lines and drains in areas where there could be water back up from the expected more than two inches of rain.
Street sweepers are cleaning leaves and debris from curbs and gutters across town, to keep as much trash as possible out of those lines.
And pumps are being cranked up to lower holding ponds. Generators are also being tested at pump stations, in case of power outages that could affect those pumps.
Wind gusts in excess of 45 miles per hour could break tree limbs and bring down power lines. It's an all out effort to get the sewer and storm drains ready for the heavy rains expected tomorrow.
Dougherty County School officials held a meeting this morning to discuss storm preparations. School transportation and Police officials will monitor weather warnings, to make sure the students don't get on buses if there's a severe weather threat.
