JESUP, Ga. (WTOC) - There wasn’t much damage from Monday’s storm to report in Jesup, but there was some.

The bleachers are normally where the Yellow Jacket Marching Band sits during games.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, there won’t be any spring football played at the stadium. The 2020 high school football season kicks off in mid-August, leaving plenty of time for the Yellow Jackets to get the issue fixed before the first game.
