Georgia Weathers the Storm
In September 2017, Hurricane Irma forced the evacuation of the Georgia coast and caused tremendous damage in many communities from St. Marys to Savannah. Members of Georgia's tourism and hospitality industry banded together to support one another in cleaning up and reopening after the storm.
