SAVANNAH (July 7) – The City of Savannah will suspend operations as follows in response to expected impacts from Tropical Storm Elsa this evening:

  • Youth summer camps will make every effort to have participants picked up by their parent or guardian between 2 and 4 p.m. today. Parents are asked to make arrangements to pick up their child as soon as possible, pick up must occur by 4 p.m.
  • Non-essential city services and offices will close at 4 p.m. to allow city employees to prepare their homes for potential storm impacts. 
  • Sanitation services will continue until 4 p.m. with the goal of completing today’s routes. Anyone whose garbage or recycling is not picked up by 4 p.m. must secure their cart.

“After consultation with the Chatham Emergency Management Agency (CEMA), the City Manager and I have discussed the anticipated impacts of Tropical Storm Elsa on our community and determined that non-essential services must be suspended at 4 p.m. today,” said Mayor Van R. Johnson, II. “We urge all Savannahians to prepare their homes for potentially heavy rain and high winds, including ensuring outdoor items are secured, and by all means be safe.”
