Within driving distance of CSRA, the beaches are packed for holiday

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, experts are predicting to see a record-low of holiday travelers this weekend. But you wouldn't guess that by the looks of beaches within driving distance of the CSRA.

Even though some have opened their doors, they say it's certainly not normal church.

Over the weekend, Fort Gordon went forward with a virtual Memorial Day observance ceremony. It was just one of the ways the CSRA is observing the solemn holiday.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office says no bombs or explosive devices were found after a bomb threat at the Walgreens on Peach Orchard Road.
