Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed says "a lot of people" are still stranded in their cars on the highways nearly 24 hours after a winter storm slammed the city, but he is not sure of exactly how many people.

Reed said the focus Wednesday will be on getting food, water and gas to people still on the highways. The roads became gridlock Tuesday when schools, businesses and government offices all let out at the same time. As the snow fell on the traffic jam, the roads iced over, creating a mess.

Atlanta officials say they have gotten all of the students who spent the night in school buses off of the buses and to safe places, such as fire stations.

Reed says he is not thinking about giving the city a grade for its response right now, he is thinking about getting people out of their cars.
