Disasters/Emergencies

Winter Storm Preparedness

Winter storms can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a blizzard with blinding, wind-driven snow that lasts for several days. Some winter storms are large enough to affect several states, while others affect only a single community. Many winter storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures and sometimes by strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain.
 
 
Regardless of the severity of a winter storm, you should be prepared in order to remain safe during these events.
 
Know the Difference
Winter Storm Outlook - Winter storm conditions are possible in the next 2 to 5 days.
