All schools in Jackson, Barrow, Banks and Madison counties are closed Monday due to a heavier than expected snow storm that swept across Northeast Georgia Sunday. In addition, some other government offices and businesses will be closed Monday.
Numerous wrecks and power outages were reported in the four county area. Under the weight of the heavy snow, trees were falling across roads and power lines Sunday afternoon and evening.
The forecast calls for colder weather Sunday night, possibly freezing the snow and slush along roads and bridges.
