A list of road closures due to fallen trees and downed power lines is available on the ACC government website. It will be updated as roads open. Authorities ask that you avoid the area if you see any downed lines, yellow caution tape, or barricades.  To see that list in it's entirety: www.athensclarkecounty.com/irma

Utility companies are working to secure the lines, but with so many down, it is expected to take some time before repairs are complete. Other storm information is also available. That includes information regarding government offices, Athens Transit, and temporary shelters.
