Day 3 in the Southern Snow
- Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer
While I was out driving yesterday, I listened to the Governor's press conference on the radio. I heard the Governor mention several times that he called upon the National Guard to assist with the weather situation in Atlanta. �Fortunately, after the press conference, the radio host provided more detail about how the National Guard was helping. I learned that the NG was helping the local law enforcement and local emergency services with the removal of vehicles by providing transportation for people who needed to retrieve their abandoned cars. I drove to the local train station, West Lake Marta Station, where people were instructed to go if they needed transportation to their vehicles. When arrived, there among the agencies were the Georgia State Patrol, Marta Police, Atlanta Police, GEMA, HERO, and the National Guard set up as a hub. All agencies worked together to transfer people via Humvees�to their vehicles.
