NEWTON COUNTY, GA - Several areas in Newton County will be open for people evacuating Florida to park their RVs and campers and wait out Hurricane Irma.

The storm has caused evacuations throughout Florida, where the storm is expected to bring strong hurricane-forced winds and flooding.

 

For those evacuating with campers the following locations are available for parking: Turner Lake Complex, in the upper paved parking lot; Stone Road Complex; City Pond Park, in the gravel parking lot; Martin’s Crossing, on the left side; Asbury Street Park, located across from Oxford Public Works, Salem Campground and the City of Porterdale’s gravel parking lot.

Donations of water are being accepted at fire stations throughout the county, including the City of Covington for those evacuating from the storm in their RVs or campers.
