ATLANTA (AP) - Emergency officials in Georgia plan to hold a statewide severe winter weather drill.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency says the exercise, dubbed WinterEx 2014, is set for Tuesday. More than 600 people from local and state state government agencies, organizations and volunteer groups plan to participate.

GEMA says there will be large vehicles on interstates and major state routes during the exercise. Officials say drivers should use caution and follow at least 100 feet behind the vehicles.
