Sleet and snow will continue to fall intermittently Wednesday. The National Weather Service predicts 1-2 inches of snow. No roads in Johns Creek are closed, but ice accumulation is making travel on roads very risky.
"This is a hazardous situation and people should stay off the roads," said Police Chief Ed Densmore. "Driving on ice is dangerous to the driver and to anyone else on the road, including our Public Works staff who are trying to keep the roads clear for emergency travel. We are still under a State of Emergency."
The accumulation of ice on trees makes them dangerous as well. The NWS warns that in addition to falling on streets and powerlines, ice-laden tree limbs can fall on cars or even people underneath, causing serious injury or death.
