The City of Brookhaven sent out the following message around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday:

Brookhaven staff are preparing for forecasted heavy snow later tonight and early tomorrow morning. Current conditions are sleet mixed with some snow.

City roads are considered passable with one lane open in each direction for emergency responders. Buford Highway and Peachtree road appear to have the best driving conditions due to heavier travel throughout the day.

Brookhaven Police and Public Works crews are gearing up to handle slick roads as heavy snow accumulation is expected to start at midnight.

Earlier today Governor Nathan Deal’s Office contacted Mayor J. Max Davis directly and offed to help Brookhaven. The city has requested assistance from the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) in the form of additional salt/ sand mix material.

The agency is working down a list of requests, but Brookhaven is confident that the city will receive this material. The city is grateful to GEMA and Governor Nathan Deal for their assistance during this winter storm.

Mayor J. Max Davis continues to caution citizens about unsafe driving conditions and asks that everyone stay off the roads unless it’s an emergency.

Approximately 400 Brookhaven Georgia Power customers remain without power at this time. Emergency warming shelters are open and ready to take in anyone that needs shelter from the cold weather.
