Monday marked the 30th anniversary of the “Storm of the Century” 1993 blizzard that wreaked havoc on the East Coast and Atlanta.
The National Weather Service confirms that only a few storms can compare to what happened on Saturday, March 13, 1993.
The wind was more of a problem than the snow, taking down trees and power lines.
The aftermath was worse than the storm itself, with reporters covering the impact on the community all day long.
With no cell phones yet, reporters relied on two-way radios to communicate and locate problems.
It was a day of good old-fashioned reporting, listening to police and fire radios, and making calls to public safety agencies across Metro Atlanta.
