Forest Service closes some North Georgia recreation sites ahead of Sally

A 2018 storm caused flooding and hazardous trees to block a road on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests. (USFS)

The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests closed several low-lying recreation sites in the predicted path of Tropical Storm Sally Wednesday. The sites will remain closed until the storm passes and sites are safe for visitors.

The Forest Service urges visitors to avoid the forest during hazardous weather. Excessive rain and high winds have the potential to create high water, flash floods, falling trees, mudslides, and severe damage to roads.
