Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says there are no more students stranded on buses in the winter storm gridlock, but there are still thousands of kids who spent the night at schools.

Deal said Wednesday those children will get escorts home from National Guard vehicles or police. Authorities are also going out to give people stranded on the icy highways food, water, blankets and gas.

It’s still not clear exactly how many people are stranded or when the clogged highways might clear. The city, along with much of the Deep South, became paralyzed Tuesday when a winter storm dumped snow, sleet and rain on the roads and they froze over.
