Gasoline suddenly became a precious commodity last week as Hurricane Irma evacuees and locals waited in lines at area gas stations to fill up there vehicles. It is unclear when local gas stations will have their supplies replenished. Pictured here, vehicles wait in line Friday, Sept. 8, at the Marathon gas station in Quincy.
Irma brings wind, rain, evacuees

 Last week, as Hurricane Irma approached Florida, Gadsden County’s Emergency Management geared up early to get locals prepared.
Emergency Management Director Maj. Shawn Wood urged citizens to go ahead and fill up their cars with gas even though Irma was almost a week away from Gadsden County, if she even showed up.
Meteorologists were uncertain of Irma’s projected path.  At first the hurricane was predicted to hit Miami and head up Florida’s east coast into Jacksonville, Georgia and South Carolina.
