Michael: Ga. Speedway Is Taking Storm Evacuees

Ahead of Hurricane Michael making landfall, the Atlanta Motor Speedway opened its campgrounds to evacuees.

A hurricane is on its way to the southeast, which means, once again, Gerogia’s Atlanta Motor Speedway will be opening its campgrounds for people looking to escape the storm’s path, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Hurricane Michael, which is tabbed as a Category 4 storm, is expected to make landfall near the Florida panhandle today (Oct. 10), according to Channel 2 Action News.

Ahead of Michael making its way towards Florida and Georgia, the Atlanta Motor Speedway announced Tuesday that it will open its campgrounds to those seeking refuge from the storm. The speedway did the same for Hurricane Florence last month and Hurricane Irma last year.

The speedway’s campgrounds, located in Henry County, are equipped to handle thousands of campers. Camping spots will be available free of charge for dry RV and tent campers in the Legends Campground.
