Posted: Updated:

CEMA officials say to prepare for a big bang in Savannah Thursday morning.

Four concrete silos at the old Kerr McGee facility along President Street are planned to come down. The facility is located on Kerr McGee Road off President Street just before it turns into the Islands Expressway. 

Chatham County Fire Marshals will be at the planned implosions to make sure everything goes according to plan. The implosion is set to take place at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Officials say residents in the area of President Street should be advised that they may hear the sound of the explosions and see a plume of smoke in that area.
