Atlanta area braces for dangerous ice storm

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) -

Georgia Power is reporting power outages in the Atlanta area as the South braces for a dangerous ice storm that's moving into the region.

The utility company says that more than 2,000 customers are without power early Wednesday, many of them north of Atlanta.

Emergency management workers are hunkering down, waiting to spring into action as rain -- along with temperatures -- are falling, potentially leading to dangerous ice conditions.

Atlanta and the surrounding region dodged the first punch of a dangerous winter storm Tuesday, but forecasters warn the second punch will likely bring a thick layer of ice and heavy winds that could knock out power to thousands of people and leave people stranded in their cold, dark homes for days.
