Island prepares for 'Orange Crush' of young people

TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — Tybee Island officials say they're bringing in extra police officers from nearby communities for the expected spring gathering of young people known as "Orange Crush."

Authorities say they've learned from social media that Orange Crush will likely take place April 19, so the extra officers will be on the island during that day and into the early morning the following day. The event is not officially sanctioned, and word typically spreads through social media.

Tybee Island officials are expecting traffic delays, which could begin as early as 2 p.m. April 19 and last well into the evening.

On Easter Sunday, Tybee Island plans its annual inter-denominational Sunrise Service at the pier. City officials say they're taking every step to ensure that the area is clean before the sun rises on Sunday.
