You can stay in touch with loved ones by registering at the American Red Cross Safe and Well website. Below is a running list of resources available in your area.
Cedarcrest Church, 4600 Cobb Pkwy. NW, is open. The telephone number is 678-460-3500.
Alpharetta has opened its community center as a temporary shelter for motorists who have become stranded due to hazardous road conditions, according to the city’s website. The shelter is at 175 Roswell St.
“Our Public Safety personnel are encountering numerous motorists who are stranded or have abandoned their vehicles on the roadside,” Alpharetta Assistant City Administrator James Drinkard said in a statement. “As a temporary measure we are activating our community center so that these citizens have a warm place to go until other arrangements can be made. While this is not a Red Cross approved shelter and does not offer cots and other conveniences, it is a warm dry place in which they can be safe.”
If you are stranded and cannot get through to 911, please send the Atlanta Police Department a message through Facebook or Twitter.
