Ga. agency conducts major hurricane exercise

The Georgia Emergency management Agency is conducting a three-day, full-scale exercise in hurricane preparedness.

The exercise begins Monday and coincides with the movement of the first tropical storm of the season across the Gulf of Mexico.

GEMA says about 400 state, local, and volunteer personnel will take part in the exercise.

The exercise will simulate pre-landfall, post-landfall and demobilization activities associated with the onset of a major hurricane along the Georgia coast.
