Georgia DOT announced today the reopening of the Sidney Lanier Bridge after Hurricane Ian skirted the coast but left no major damage. Individuals who evacuated from the storm are encouraged to drive safely and be mindful of current conditions as they start their journey home.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said early evening Wednesday that while Hurricane Ian is still battering the Southwest part of the peninsula, the Category 4 storm is going to continue to lash through Florida hundreds of miles away before it escapes into the Atlantic.
On September 26 at noon, Dry Tortugas National Park temporarily closed in preparation for Hurricane Ian for the safety of visitors and staff. Concession-operated ferry and sea plane services are also temporarily suspended.
