TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

A lot of hurricane evacuees with RV's found spots in south Georgia to ride out the storm.

Sometimes during disasters, GEMA and Georgia Power stage equipment on the grounds of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture in Tifton.

When they decided not to use the area, the museum opened to evacuees since most RV parks are full.

"I'm totally speechless actually because in spite beyond my wildest dreams. I thought we were going to be sleeping in a Walmart parking lot with our camper. And when we heard this, it was truly a blessing because we had no idea," said Jacksonville evacuee Kim Corley.

Campers can stay as long as they need and can visit the museum free of charge.

Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele is also allowing evacuees to park their RVs.
