Here's the latest update from Bryan County on Tropical Storm Ian.

Bryan County Offices in Pembroke and Richmond Hill will close at 3 p.m. today, Thursday, September 29, 2022 and will reopen Monday October 3, 2022. Emergency services and essential staff will remain on duty to serve the public.

Earlier today, the county announced the following:

 Bryan County will close the temporary trailers in Pembroke and will assess conditions for any further closures. Bryan County Schools are closed for students and staff on Thursday and Friday. Richmond Hill and Pembroke will close their offices at noon on Thursday to reopen on Monday, October 3, 2022.


Tropical Storm Ian has downgraded from a hurricane after moving over Florida and will enter the Atlantic Ocean before curving back towards the Georgia or South Carolina coast. The earliest expected impacts are now in the early morning hours on Friday, September 30, 2022, and continuing potentially through Saturday.


Flooding for areas East of Interstate 95 and high winds throughout the County are the predicted impacts for our area. Storm surge can potentially be 3-5 feet above normal tide. Secure any lawn chairs, garbage cans, trampolines etc. as they can become projectiles in high winds.


The only roadway closed at this time are the railroad tracks on Highway 144 next to Richmond Hill City Hall. The Georgia Department of Transportation has reversed the decision to close the Talmadge Bridge in Savannah, but will continue closures for the Houlihan and Sidney Lanier Bridges.
