Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Multiple curfew that were implemented during Hurricane Dorian have been lifted.

News 3’s Jon Dowding spoke to Chief Minter of the Savannah Police Department who says he believes the curfew helped public safety by limiting traffic before the storm.

“We looked at this [storm] and we felt that it was best for us to be proactive in announcing the curfew right after the state of emergency and evacuation order was given by the Governor,” says Chief Minter.

Chief Minter also told News 3 the curfew resulted in the arrests of about 20 people in Savannah, many of which already had warrants out for their arrest.

Beaufort County is still planning to enforce a curfew Thursday night into Friday morning.
