ATLANTA -- Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is taking responsibility for the storm preparation failures that led to an epic traffic jam in Atlanta.
Deal said Thursday that the state did not make preparations early enough to avoid the problems that occurred. He says his agencies will undergo internal and external reviews and that the state will compile a new plan of action.
Snow started falling on Atlanta on Tuesday and commuters, schools and businesses all let out at the same time, causing gridlock. Some people had to abandoned their cars or sleep in them overnight and students and drivers spending the night on buses and cars.
