SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Workers in a southeast Georgia county are assessing damage and cleaning up the area after the passage of Tropical Storm Hermine.

Chatham County officials said Sunday crews conducted damage assessment and removed downed trees from roadways Friday and Saturday. Clean up efforts will continue Monday as the public works in the county begin to remove debris.

Hermine moved across south Georgia at 14 mph toward Savannah on the coast on Thursday.

Officials say regular scheduled pickup of yard waste has been postponed until debris from the storm has been removed.

Georgia Power officials say Chatham County had the most power outages out of any other county.
