Gwinnett preps for possible winter weather

As a freeze warning remains in effect until Friday morning, Gwinnett County isn't wasting time preparing for the potential of icy roads.

The county's communication team met Thursday afternoon to make sure the emergency operations center would be ready to open, if needed, and that communication channels were ready. After last winter's series of ice storms, no one is taking any chances that bad weather will come before leadership is ready for it.

"We certainly debriefed after last year's storms," Gwinnett spokesman Joe Sorenson said.

The Jan. 2011 ice storm made it hard to drive in parts of metro Atlanta.
