Baldwin EMA Prepping for TS Karen
SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WPMI) Folks in Baldwin County are preparing for Tropical Storm Karen.
Scott's Landing owner Larry Scott is moving things to higher ground. He's expecting knee deep water in his bait shop and thousands in lost profit due to closing this weekend.
"Hopefully, it just goes somewhere else," said Scott.
Emergency Management Director Mitchell Sims says he's not expecting any evacuation orders but says people in low lying areas need to pay attention. He warns not to be complacent.
"They could lose power for several hours, maybe a day. So I would definitely have food, have a plan in place," said Sims.
Sims says the federal government shutdown is not impacting operations. He also says public schools will be open Friday, but high school football games may have to be cancelled.
