SAVANNAH, GA (October 9, 2016): The Chatham Emergency Managment Agency will start allowing all residents and visitors back into Chatham County at 5:00 p.m. today.  No documents will be required to reenter.

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is asking residents to use caution and be vigilant when they return home.

  • There are still trees blocking some roads and many intersections remain without power.  If motorists come to an intersection without power, remember to treat that intersection as a four-way stop.

  • Finally, Metro asks members of the community to continue to report suspicious activity which may lead to burglaries, robberies, or theft and looting by calling 911.
