Across the state, and even extending into Alabama, there were reports of children spending the night in schools, their parents or school buses unable to navigate treacherous conditions that Georgia Department of Public Safety Commissioner Col. Mark McDonough said caused almost 1,000 accidents in the Georgia capital alone.
Fifty Atlanta students remained on school buses overnight, and seven of them still weren't home by 5 a.m. ET, Atlanta Public Schools spokeswoman Kimberly Willis Green said.
Atlanta police delivered food to the kids, who were all home or returned to schools by 9 a.m. ET, she said. As of Wednesday morning, "several hundred students at nine schools are sheltered in place," she said.
Facing critics who ask how fewer than 3 inches of snow could cripple the city, especially after it tangled with another debilitating storm in 2011, Mayor Kasim Reed assured Atlantans the city was working to open roads and asked them to stay at home.
