Treacherous Roads Expected Tonight As Storm Continues

Things have gone relatively well so far today in Stephens County.

That’s the word from Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley.

Shirley says, however, that conditions will likely deteriorate tonight as precipitation continues and temperatures drop.

He urges people to stay home this evening.

Meanwhile in the city of Toccoa, City Manager Billy Morse says things also went well all things considered, with no fire calls and only a few minor accidents in the city limits.

Both city and county crews will be at through the night and in the morning, watching for icing and working to clear the roads, focusing on major roads first then working to secondary roads if possible.

Overall, Shirley says he appreciates the way the community has come together.

There have been no power outages reported in the area as of Tuesday evening.

Officials did announce that if needed, the Toccoa National Guard Armory would serve as an emergency shelter.  The armory is located on East Savannah Street in downtown Toccoa.
