SCOTUS: Florida's 'Water War' Allowed To Continue Against Georgia

Jun 27, 2018

In a victory for Florida, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the nation’s third-largest state should be given another chance to prove its case that overconsumption of water in Georgia is damaging the Apalachicola River system.

As the world comes to grips with the unprecedented damage of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, millions of Americans in the southeastern United States are working to rebuild their lives. Irma crossed into Georgia in the early morning hours of Monday, September 11, 2017. Over the next 24 hours, water inundated island and beach communities over 100 miles of coastline. Winds topping 69 miles per hour toppled trees and power lines. 1.1 million Georgians lost power and three lost their lives.

Camden County, Georgia, emergency management officials are asking drivers on I-95 to keep on moving and not stop in their county. 

There are no electricity, water, or sewer services, which is coupled with no fuel supply or accommodations available to serve the public. 

Hundreds of animals and their humans have evacuated to the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricultural Center in Perry, Georgia, ahead of Hurricane Irma.

Horses are welcomed with a free stall, three bags of shavings and access to the arenas. State veterinary regulations are suspended for animals coming from Florida and within the state of Georgia. As of Saturday morning, nearly 200 horses were on site, with at least as many humans tending to them. Barn managers say the facility can hold 350 horses in stalls, but no one will be turned away.

As Hurricane Irma’s track shifted farther west, many in the Savannah area wondered whether to evacuate as ordered. Some people who at first considered leaving opted to stay, rather than evacuate west to areas increasingly covered by storm trajectories.
