National Guard seeks stranded Georgia school buses

ATLANTA – Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says the National Guard is sending military Humvees onto Atlanta's winter weather-snarled freeway system in an attempt to move stranded school buses and get food and water to people.

Deal said the Georgia State Patrol is also sending troopers to schools where children remain stranded after spending the night there after snow began falling Tuesday afternoon. He said in a statement early Wednesday that state transportation crews are continuing to treat roads and bring gas to stranded motorists.

Deal planned a briefing at lunchtime Wednesday at the Capitol to discuss the state's "ongoing disaster response."

A sea of red brake lights remained at a standstill along a dozen lanes of the Downtown Connector shortly before dawn Wednesday.
