Attorney General Steve Marshall warned those who might exploit the ongoing bad weather for illegal profit that Alabama's price gouging law, which was activated by Governor Kay Ivey in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, remains in effect under the threat of Hurricane Irma. "Older, larger trees - very stately, attractive - they really speak to the spirit of the Charlotte community", says Porter. Gardner said the storm will remain Category 5 through Friday night before it begins to weaken slightly.

Ivey's declaration came amid a chorus of emergency declarations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia ahead of Irma's landfall.

Nick Petro of the National Weather Service said during the noon briefing that people should be ready for localized flash flooding in areas that are prone to flooding. "Those who prepare are likely to recover more quickly".

"Its a big storm".

NWS officials extended the forecast timeline, but the storm's predicted path did not change significantly.

Local chapters of the Red Cross are also preparing for the possibility of Irma. "Make sure you have all the things you need".

"The local authorities for each jurisdiction are going to instruct their residents how to evacuate", said Sprayberry. The swiftwater team also shared its availability with the North Carolina Emergency Operations Center. "We'll be ready", he said. Cooper said organizations will need to work to ensure those people have a safe place to go when Irma arrives.

"Although at this point is does not appear that Alabama will face the brunt of the storm, we will certainly be affected and we must be ready to respond, no matter what comes our way", Ivey said.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said officials are making slow releases at Falls Sam and Jordan Dam ahead of the storm, although water levels at both lakes were below normal levels Wednesday.
