Chattooga County Public Works director Lamar Canada told AM 1180 on Monday evening that his crews had worked all day on Monday clearing debris from the weekend storm. Canada said that all roads in Chattooga County were now open for traffic, but that residents should continue to use caution and give workers the room they needed to work in cleaning up the mess left by the EF1 tornado that struck the county on Sunday morning.
A steady stream of on-lookers have been driving through the affected areas of Chattooga County for the past two days. This has caused some slow-down for county workers and workers with Georgia Power and NGEMC. If motorist are travelling in the area affected by the storms be sure to give workers the benefit of the doubt and use caution while travelling.
