ATLANTA (AP) - At least 11 people in metro Atlanta have died from hypothermia since the beginning of December.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution cites Fulton County Medical Examiner records as saying at least eight of those people were homeless.

Seven deaths happened in December and four have occurred this month. The most recent death was on Jan. 15.

The newspaper reports the city has plans to find shelter for homeless people in the area. Cobb County investigators say hypothermia may have contributed to three additional deaths.
