Winter is coming. This means the possibility of severe winter weather, and the Shelby County Emergency Management agency wants you to be prepared. The office is recommending residents take measures to be prepared for winter weather, from learning the difference between a watch and a warning, to putting together kits that could help you should things go south.
Jared Rowcliffe with the Shelby County Emergency Management Agency appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios, and says there's an important difference between a winter storm watch, and a winter storm warning.
It's also a good idea to stock up and have some supplies handy if your situation turns dangerous.
Rowcliffe also says you should stay off the roads during bad winter weather.
