Walton, Gwinnett and surrounding counties are included in emergency area
Atlanta, GA (Jan. 14, 2022)– Gov. Brian P. Kemp declared a state of emergency in preparation for the impacts of a winter storm system that could affect areas of Georgia north of Interstate 20. The State of Emergency, beginning tomorrow, Jan. 15, was issued due to the potential for snowfalls of 2 – 5 inches and some much larger snowfalls in higher elevations as well as the potential for 1/4 to an inch of ice in some locations and winds with gusts of 25 to 35 mph. Assistance from state agencies is therefore necessary.
