Glynn County residents should avoid any standing or flowing water outside their homes for the next few days because it may contain contaminates, Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water and Sewer Commission Executive Director Jimmy Junkin said.

The utility has already seen some sewage overflows around the county to the point where work trucks are “maxed out” cleaning them up.

This new public safety hazard, along with fallen trees and power lines, can create even more dangerous situations for those already in the county and those that will be returning after the county is re-opened Thursday at 8 a.m. 

Junkin said residents should do what they need to keep themselves and loved ones safe and that common sense and good judgement would keep most residents out of harms way.
