‘Catastrophic’ storm slams into South


A massive storm that has already brought wintry weather to parts of the South slammed into the Atlanta area Wednesday, creating icy conditions on roadways and forcing airlines to cancel thousands of flights. By 5 a.m. local time, freezing rain began falling in Atlanta, covering cars and road signs with ice, according to MyFoxAtlanta.com. The National Weather service is predicting 3 to 5 inches of snow Wednesday in cities including Atlanta, Marietta, Lawrenceville and Decatur, and heavier snow in portions of northern Georgia. Georgia Power reported that more than 57,000 customers were without power early Wednesday, many of them in the Atlanta area. The icy conditions have forced the cancellations of thousands of flights across the country, including nearly 70 percent of flights heading in and out of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International airport, the busiest in the nation. By Wednesday morning, more than 2,800 flights had been canceled, according to the tracking website FlightAware.com. Delta canceled nearly 2,200 flights on Tuesday and Wednesday, most of them in Atlanta. Southwest Airlines spokesman Brad Hawkins says Southwest and AirTran have canceled all flights departing from Atlanta on Wednesday, and added that the airlines are hoping to resume normal operations on Thursday morning.
