“Stay off the roads,” Natalie Dale, spokeswoman for Georgia Department of Transportation, told News 95.5 & AM 750 WSB. “We have our crews out, but there are some complexities to what we are dealing with." Asked when to expect an all-clear today, she said, “I don’t expect to get an all-clear today.”

Multiple accidents were reported since 6 a.m., including 50 in Gwinnett and 15 in Marietta, police said.
