[ARCHIVED] City urges caution, preparation as storm approaches

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 1, 2016

The City continues to monitor Tropical Storm Hermine and make necessary preparations for the expected high winds and heavy rain. Residents should be aware that yard waste will not be collected on Friday, but postponed until Saturday. The River Street parking lots will be closed Friday due to the threat of storm surge.

The City of Savannah is urging residents to prepare for the effects of Tropical Storm Hermine, which is expected to impact Savannah beginning Friday morning, and to use caution during and after the storm event:

• Build an emergency kit – including food, water and supplies – and make a family communications plan.
• Secure outside items that could be vulnerable to the strong winds we’re expecting. This includes securing your trash and recycling carts.
• Don’t drive through standing water. In addition to the risk to your safety, wake from your car will push water from the streets into surrounding property, increasing the chance of structural flooding.

Tropical Storm Hermine is forecasted to produce high winds and 4 to 8 inches of rainfall in southeast Georgia, with a total of 10 inches expected through Saturday.
