Winter Storm Causes Obama to Declare Emergency for Georgia
Forecasters have called for a "catastrophic" winter storm to threaten areas from Atlanta to South Carolina with crippling ice accumulations and wind gusts up to 30 mph. Power outages are expected and meteorologists predict an ice storm "that happens only once every 10 to 20 years for the area." President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency in Georgia, ordering federal agencies to help with state response. The storm is expected to last "for days."
