Although severe weather, including an accumulation of snow and ice, had been predicted for the Coastal Georgia area Wednesday and Thursday, Liberty County experienced only rain early Wednesday morning.
The rain did freeze in some areas, leaving trees, sign posts and street lamps thinly coated in ice, but no problems were reported with road conditions.
“We had absolutely nothing overnight,” Liberty County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Hodges said Wednesday morning.
A few minor power outages were reported by Georgia Power across the region, but none locally. Coastal EMC customers saw no outages, according to Mark Bolton, the utility’s vice president for communications and development.
“Our 30 crew members in their Richmond Hill hotel slept the night without incident,” Holton said.
He did note one household losing power for a few minutes Tuesday night in coastal Bryan County.
“All systems are operating normally this morning,” he said Wednesday.
Many government offices, schools and military operations closed in anticipation of the inclement weather.
