ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Emergency Management officials around South Georgia will have another video conference with the National Weather Service in the morning as they keep an eye on this developing storm.

They held one this afternoon, discussing the potential for hazardous driving conditions and widespread power outages. They're preparing now and say it's important for you to do that too.

"We always ask people to have things like flashlights, batteries, extra blankets, but primarily if you do not have to be out then do not go out, stay inside try and stay warm. Plus you may lose power for a period of time," said Jim Vaught EMA Director. 

If you have weak tree limbs hanging over power lines or your home, it's a good idea to take them down as soon as possible before it creates an expensive fix.
