SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) – Life along Georgia’s coast continued its slow return to normal after Hurricane Matthew, though authorities advised patience as power is restored, trees are cleared and roads are reopened.
In Savannah, there were plenty of signs of recovery Monday morning, two days after the storm struck.
Some traffic signals were back online at busy intersections. A growing number of gas stations and grocery stores were reopening.
Roadblocks keeping evacuated residents from returning to Savannah and neighboring Tybee Island had been lifted.
Still, local officials were pleading with people to be patient and remain extra cautious, saying a full recovery was still far away.
