Severe Weather Outbreak 4-13-20
 
This morning at approximately 7:30 AM portions of Liberty County were affected by strong winds embedded in a line of thunderstorms that moved across our area. Those areas most heavily impacted were in a path stretching just south of Riceboro to Sunbury. It is not known at this time whether or not the storms were caused by a small tornado or strong straight line winds.
 
There have been several homes damaged and/ or destroyed but no casualties or injuries have been reported.
 
Most of the roadways in the area are passable but motorists should not travel to those affected areas unless absolutely necessary as there is still a good bit of loose debris in lanes of travel. At present there are still a little over 1300 customers without power as a result of the storms. Crews are working diligently to get it restored.
 
Storm debris may be taken by citizens only to any County convenience center location. Locations on the East end of the County will run extended hours until dark. Those persons utilizing contractors should have them dispose of material at their normal approved disposal site. No contractors will be permitted at convenience center locations.
 
Damage assessment teams are in the field now and will work through the afternoon developing estimates of damages. Once we have that information we will share that with you. Citizens with structural damage should call the Liberty County Tax Assessors office at 912-368-3568.
