Video: Storm prep checklist

Thousands of people were stranded in their vehicles during a snow storm in metro Atlanta on Jan. 28, 2014.


Don't be caught in your vehicle unprepared for a winter storm. The Georgia Emergency Management Agency has a list of items you should have loaded in your car before a storm.

According to AAA, you should pack:

- Mobile phone with emergency numbers (fully charged battery with charger)

- Drinking water

- First aid kit

-Non-perishable snacks

- A bag of abrasive material (sand, salt, cat litter)

- Snow shovel and ice scraper

- Blankets and extra warm clothing

- Flashlight with extra battery

- Jumper cables

- Basic tool kit

- Critical medication

Also be sure to have at least 3/4 full tank of gasoline.

Residents are also reminded to park their vehicles away from trees. Even after the storm is over, trees can uproot and fall over.

If a tree is over a bedroom, have those people sleep in a room out of potential harm's way.
