Fleeing Matthew? Georgia tourism has all hotel vacancies in one click

ATLANTA — Georgia’s Tourism Bureau has launched a website

with information on evacuation routes, shelters, lodging vacancies and more.

Availability at lodging and shelters will be updated every two hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

There is a strong probability of storm surge and power outages along the length of the Georgia coast.

There are few, if any lodging options south of Macon. The Georgia Tourism Bureau is encouraging visitors to head to the north Georgia mountain area, and away from major Interstates. Lodging is quickly becoming extremely limited across the state including areas south of Atlanta.
