The snow that fell across Liberty County Wednesday was responsible for roughly 81 weather related accidents, according to Liberty County Emergency Management Agency Deputy Director Larry Logan.

Of those, Georgia State Patrol Post 11 said they responded to 19 accidents. Hinesville Police said they investigated 8 minor incidents, according to Officer Scott Hensler.

The bomb cyclone, as termed by the Weather Channel also left 5,000 customers temporarily without power, Logan reported.

He added they currently have only 25 customers without power at this time.

“Georgia Power and Coastal EMC are working to restore the few remaining customers at this time,” Logan said.

The county remained under a weather advisory this morning as temperatures remained in the lowers 20s.

The snowfall was the first accumulative snowfall in the area since 1989. There was a brief snow flurry in 2010.
