Winter storm Leon has devastated Atlanta and stranded motorists were stuck on freeways in the deadly cold weather for hours as the videos and news reports show. According to some reports the National Guard has been called in and a major effort is being waged to prevent loss of life.

Via Atlanta Journal Constitution, a look at just some of the issues facing Atlanta residents:

The winter storm that paralyzed metro Atlanta and other parts of Georgia prompted Gov. Nathan Deal to declare a state of emergency Tuesday afternoon for all 159 counties. He addressed the government’s efforts to help unclog roadways and rescue stranded motorists late Tuesday night, and said troopers being sent to schools where students were stranded.

Shortly before midnight, about 50 students were still aboard Atlanta Public School buses, a spokeswoman for the district said. In DeKalb County, at least 20 vehicles were involved in a pileup on U.S. 78 eastbound, past Hugh Howell Road. All lanes were blocked around 1 a.m. Wednesday.
