Monroe County EMA Director: Residents Made Snow Patrol Easy

FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- Snow hit Monroe County first in Middle Georgia, and it quickly piled up Tuesday.

Monroe County EMA Director, Matthew Perry, said accumulation was between two to three inches.

By 12 a.m. Wednesday, Perry said there were only about a dozen accidents on the roads, and a majority of them were simply cars getting stuck. No one was injured.

Perry is impressed and thankful that residents in Monroe listened to the weather warnings, and stayed home.

"On behalf of everybody who was a part of the response to this, we can't thank the citizens enough for doing that. It made our job remarkably easier, so much safer. We weren't having to have crews constantly out on the roadways in and out of traffic on the interstate. It was just much smoother because we had such a small number of people traveling," Perry told 41NBC over the phone.

Perry's urging everyone to stay off the roads Wednesday morning. He predicts ice will be bad around the county, especially on bridges.
