Emergency management, police, road crew, fire department and school officials in the Statesboro area started planning their response to Hurricane Hermine while it was still headed our way off the western coast of Florida. Four to eight inches of rain, sustained winds of for 35-45 mph and 50-55 mph gusts and a slight risk of spinoff tornadoes were all in the National Weather Service forecast for the Statesboro area.
