Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said National Guard troops and state police will escort buses to take home some 2,400 children stuck in Atlanta-area schools after Tuesday’s snowstorm that paralyzed area roads.
The students will be “transported as soon as possible back to their homes,” Deal said.
Deal said the state government will close again on Thursday because of treacherous road conditions. He asked people to stay off the roads to give crews time to clear them.
One person died and 130 were injured in Georgia in Tuesday’s storm. At least 1,254 accidents were reported.
