Albany -- Dougherty County and Albany officials are keeping a close watch on Hurricane Ivan and preparing for the storm. County and city leaders met again this morning for the latest update on the storm track. They say they want to prepare now for the worst case scenario, including emergency shelters.
Albany Red Cross officials are urging Florida evacuees to keep going North since this area could be in the path of the storm. Evacuees should travel at least to Perry just to be safe.
The Red Cross has shelters on stand by just in case, but right now no shelters are open. "We don't want people standing in line at these shelters," said Jim Johnson of the Albany Red Cross. "We won't open them until the EMA Director tells us to open. It takes intensive manpower to open a shelter. We'll open one at a time. So as the capacity in the first one is reached, we'll have another on stand by."
If shelters are open, The Red Cross is asking evacuees to bring blankets and pillows if they can. Supplies are low because cots and blankets were sent to Florida.
