COLD WEATHER GRIPS SOUTH GEORGIA
Severe cold weather and wind chill factors in the low double digits meant inconvenience for most in south Georgia. Frozen pipes, lack of water and, for some, lack of proper heating meant inconvenience. Authorities advise everyone that the cold weather will continue through Thursday night. Precautions should be taken to avoid further issues.
