THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomas County leaders met Wednesday afternoon to be briefed on Tropical Depression 16, that has formed in the Gulf. 

"From the EMA Perspective and the people in the community and the responders we ask them to go ahead and start planning for the event. We want to use the motto we always use that if you're prepared we are better prepared," said Chris Jones, EMA Director

The National Weather Service predicts that TD16 will become Tropical Storm Nate in the next 48 hours. 

NWS says Nate could become a hurricane, although there is still a lot of uncertainty, and they encourage people not to focus on individual points, but focus on the cone.

NWS predicts the potential for strong winds and storm surge with this system though it's too early for precise impacts. 

Another EOC briefing will be held Thursday at 2:30 p.m.
