ATLANTA, GA – This season winter’s definitely been living up to its name, even as far south as the Lone Star State. Georgia felt winter’s wrath last week when nearly two inches of snow fell, shutting down the metro-Atlanta area. Now the governor is stepping up, launching a severe weather task force.

The panel ‘s made up of meteorologists and other state leaders. They’re even adding severe weather alerts similar to its Amber Alert system.

“This alert mechanism will put everyone on notice of severe weather warnings and any declaration of emergency that would be issued from our office,” said Gov. Nathan Deal.

The state emergency app is also getting re-vamped, which will now include information like shelter locations and alternate traffic routes.
