Cleanup from the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irma continued in Sandy Springs on Wednesday.

At 8 a.m., the city reported it still had 34 road sites on its “to clear” list. As of 11 a.m. the city reported it had cleared four of those sites.

Sandy Springs is posting updates about road opening and closures for residents on its Facebook page. City hall is open, Fulton County schools remain closed and the city is asking its residents to drive carefully as they go about their day.

Riverside Drive and Heards Ferry Road will not open for a day or more due to trees and power lines down, the city says. Seven power poles have been damaged and Georgia Power says it will take eight crews to repair the intersection.

The city is asking residents to not touch downed or low hanging wires, and to never pull tree limbs off power lines or enter areas of debris. To report downed power lines, call Georgia Power at 1-888-891-0938. To report downed trees, call 770-730-5600.
