The people in that area are not used to such harsh winter storms that shut down cities. Instead of ignoring the weather predictions or underestimating them, the governor and mayor both should have taken the storm warnings much more seriously, especially considering how bad the winter had been in the weeks leading up to them.
I definitely think that the governor and mayor of the state of Georgia and city of Atlanta should have been more involved in disaster preparedness in response to the winter storms of 2014. I think that whe somebody runs a city, they should always be prepared for whatever possible disaster can occur.
No, the governor of Georgia and mayor of Atlanta should not have been more involved in disaster preparedness in response to the winter storms of 2014, because of all the things that can happen in Atlanta, extremely cold temperatures are probably not something that the people ever saw coming. They did their best to respond.
I do not believe the governor of Georgia and the mayor of Atlanta should be more involved in disaster preparedness in response to the winter storms of 2014. They need plow trucks, salt, and sand. These three things solve the problem. Snow is not a disaster and it shouldn't cause the problems seen in the south over the winter. Educate people on how to drive in bad weather and treat the roads. Problem solved.
