TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum says they are anticipating a loss of power due to the hurricane.
Sheriff Walt McNeil says his deputies are preparing for the worst working 12 hour shifts. They're teaming up with public works to make sure the roads are clear.
Deputies will also be in shelters to make sure everyone is safe.
"Obviously Hurricane Irma is gonna be a statewide impact," said John Daly, Leon County chairman." One of the resources that could be impacted is the ability to get to generators at all of traffic signals. We just urge citizens to remember if you come to a traffic signal that's out you have to treat it as if it's a four way stop. You need to proceed with caution go slowly through them and be safe
On Tuesday, a local state of emergency was issued. The Leon County chairman has since issued a voluntary evacuation at 6 a.m. tomorrow for those living in mobile homes.
