Schools Closed Wednesday & Georgia Power Hotline

February 11, 2014

DeKalb County Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, February 12. Fulton County announced yesterday that schools will be closed Wednesday, as well.

Widespread — and probably universal — closings are expected Wednesday. Tomorrow’s winter storm is anticipated to be worse than the storm two weeks ago. This storm is expected to be more of an ice event, which could cause downed trees and power lines.

If you experience a power outage or downed power line, Georgia Power’s 24/7 hotline for reporting these issues is (888) 891-0938.

WSB-TV has an up-to-date list of closings. Please click here to find current information regarding additional weather-related closings.

Some local governments are posting updated information on their websites, which are as follows:

MARTA CEO Keith Parker has informed me that buses will begin to run Thursday at 8:00 a.m. Trains have been running throughout the storm aftermath. Train service will run tonight until 1:30 a.m. Please be patient, however, because there has been heavy ridership and significant delays.
