Georgia Governor Nathan deal is taking responsibility for poor storm preparations in the state.
He says the state didn't make preparations early enough to avoid problems that occurred.
Governor Deal says his agencies will undergo internal and external reviews.
Ultimately the state will compile a new plan of action.
“I think we did not respond fast enough. We did not respond in the magnitude at an early enough time to be able to avoid some of these consequences. We can make excuses about the fact that this happened in the middle of the day, during a work week. That did, of course, complicate the situation. But, nevertheless, we will be much more cautious and much more aggressive in terms of taking action in advance of future situations.”
Snow started falling on Atlanta Tuesday.
Commuters, schools and businesses all let out at the same time causing gridlock.
