January 28-- While weather forecasters are talking about snow in the middle and upper parts of the state, they're warning us in south Georgia to beware of freezing rain which makes roads very dangerous.
Toombs County EMA Director Lynn Moore says emergency personnel and road crews are on alert.
"We've got everybody on standby. The county road crews have already put some sand on some of the county maintained bridges. We basically have to wait and see what happens and we'll respond to anything that happens," he says.
Because you often can't see black ice on roads, Moore's advice is to stay off the roads until the danger passes.
"Look and see the conditions in your yard and whatever those conditions are, you'll know that's what the conditions on the road will be. Make a good decision. Black ice is hard to detect and the simplest thing I can say is that if you don't have to get out, don't do it," Moore advises.
