Georgia governor Kemp lifts Dorian evacuation order
Georgia governor Brian Kemp lifted the Hurricane Dorian evacuation order on September 5 at 9:30 a.m. for people east of I-95 in Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Glynn, Liberty and McIntosh counties.
Bryan, Camden, Glynn and Liberty Counties have authorized re-entry for residents and visitors.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is inspecting roads and bridges in affected counties.
Some roads and bridges may be impassable even after the mandatory evacuation order was lifted.
"I want to thank the countless emergency management officials, law enforcement, first responders, local leaders, and Georgians who worked together to prepare and respond to Hurricane Dorian. As Governor, I am incredibly proud of our statewide collaboration and deeply grateful that we experienced no loss of life. Many Georgians still have challenges ahead - power outages, fallen trees, and property damage - in the aftermath of this powerful storm, but I am confident that we will address them and emerge even stronger," said Governor Kemp. "Now, we must stand together and offer our assistance to the Bahamas and our neighbors, South Carolina and North Carolina."
