Deadly winter storm continues to impact the Gulf Coast and Southeast

Governors in three states—Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina—have declared states of emergency amid forecasts of significant snow and ice for the region.

Georgia

The deadly winter storm moving across the Southeast paralyzed metro Atlanta and other major cities in Georgia prompting Gov. Deal to declare a  State of Emergency Tuesday afternoon for the entire State of Georgia (159 counties).

“Many parts of our state have experienced heavy sleet and snowfall, and in the metro areas we’re experiencing traffic jams caused primarily by heavy volume after the quick onset of the winter storm,” said Deal.

Executive order prohibiting propane price gouging

On Monday, Deal signed an executive order prohibiting price gouging for propane. Georgia’s continued period of cold weather has increased the demand for propane, causing a substantial prices increase.

State of Georgia does NOT post details of Executive Orders and or Proclamations on its official website.

The Carolinas

Up to 6 inches of snow could fall in parts of the Carolinas.

North Carolina
“Given the forecast and as winter weather approaches, we are working with all necessary departments and local emergency management crews in order to keep our citizens safe and up to date regarding potentially hazardous weather conditions,” said Governor McCrory. “This morning, I signed two executive orders declaring a state of emergency for North Carolina and waiving certain requirements for vehicles assisting in relief efforts [propane shortage.] We are prepared for likely power outages and dangerous driving conditions throughout our state. These executive orders and our capable statewide and local officials will ensure a rapid response to any adverse conditions.”

“Our residents, as well as our livestock industry, need heat and electricity.”

South Carolina

Governor Nikki Haley has also declared a State of Emergency due to the major winter storm that is expected to impact the state beginning Tuesday afternoon.

“Governor Haley has ordered all state government offices to follow county government closing decisions; meaning if a county administration decides to close for the day, state offices in that county will automatically follow the same schedule,” said an official statement.

States of Emergency Declared in Alabama, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi

On Monday, States of Emergency were declared in  Alabama, Louisiana, Minnesota and Mississippi.

Deadly weather-related traffic accidents

At least five people were killed and nine others injured in weather-related traffic accidents in Alabama on Tuesday, according to the state’s Department of Public Safety.

At least 3 people were killed in weather related road crashes in southern Mississippi.

The storm is affecting an estimated 55 million people from eastern Texas to southeastern Pennsylvania.
