ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Governor signed an executive order tonight declaring a state of emergency for 15 North Georgia Counties under a winter storm warning. 


He's asking state workers in the affected ares to stay at home.

"I am issuing this order out of an abundance of caution, so the state can make all preparations necessary to quickly and efficiently address any potential winter weather problems," said Deal. "We will monitor the weather throughout the night and allocate state resources as needed should ice formation creep further south into the metro area,” says Governor Deal.

Here's a list of counties:

  • Catoosa

  • Gilmer
  • Habersham
  • Lumpkin
