Just a little over twenty minutes ago The National Weather Service has changed our local winter storm watch to a winter storm WARNING! Here are some tips to help you get prepared and stay safe:
During a winter storm, ice can cause tree limbs to break and entire trees to fall. If you come across a downed power line, ALWAYS assume the power line is LIVE.
With temperatures being near freezing on Wednesday, be careful for ice on roads, bridges and overpasses........EVEN until Thursday!
If the power were to go out while cooking a meal, remember to TURN OFF your oven or stove.
Household items such as cooking stoves, ovens and outdoor grills should NEVER be used for heat!
Supplemental heaters and generators designed for homes should be used with EXTREME CAUTION!
Now would be a great time to register for SCE&G's texting option to report an outage.
Check the batteries in your flashlights and have them ready and handy. DO NOT use candles for emergency lighting or heating.
Keep extra batteries on hand and purchase a battery powered radio.
Get a fire extinguisher!
When power is restored, wait 15 minutes before turning any appliance back on.
Even in our 60 degree weather today, it looks like winter may be upon us. Get prepared, stay warm and stay safe!!
