Jekyll Island followed the lead of the Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water Sewer Commission and is not currently planning to shut down its water and sewer system.
"At this time, based on current projections, we will not shut down central services (water and sewer)," a notice from Jekyll Island said. "Per the JIA disaster plan, we will continue to monitor the storm and keep our system operational as long as possible. If conditions worsen, we will update appropriately and issue an update at that time."
The Downing Musgrove Causeway and the Sidney Lanier Bridge are both closed, and Jekyll Island emergency personnel are not responding to calls.
Jekyll Island curfew is still in effect, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., until further notice. The Georgia State Patrol, DNR law enforcement, and Military Police are patrolling both the causeway and the island to ensure the protection of life and property.
A tropical storm warning and storm surge warning are both still in place for all of Glynn County. The area can expect to see winds of around 60 mph and storm surge of 4-6 feet along with 5-10 inches of rain.
Residents are encouraged to shelter in place.
