N. Ga. digging out; Icy roads cause issues for drivers


Many school systems have canceled classes again Friday after a winter storm Wednesday that left several inches of snow across a wide area north of metro Atlanta. The rain and snow have moved out, but many roads remain closed due to ice.

Black ice is now a major concern in north Georgia as the snow that stayed Thursday has ended up on the roadways. Even without a snowstorm in metro Atlanta, the freezing temperatures have made it difficult to get around and multiple accidents have occurred. 

Multiple injuries were reported Friday morning from a black ice wreck on Barrett Parkway in North Cobb. The crash caused the busy road to shut down.

A small number of power outages resulted from the snowstorm. The state's EMCs reported most of the weather-related outages were fixed. Most of those were in Gilmer, White, Gordon and Catoosa counties.
