People were strictly advised to stay within their homes and to not go on the roads at all until Winter Storm Austin cleared. Fox 11 News offered the people of Wisconsin some tips about how to deal with this storm.
The state of Mississippi also received heavy snow that started in lower Mississippi and then moved more south.Parts of Atlanta just had a light snow shower on January the 29th. Metro counties and schools closed as a result.
