The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released their Winter Outlook, which predicts La Nina conditions that favor a warmer, drier South and a cooler, wetter North. Winter storms can occur anywhere and bring freezing rain, ice, snow, high winds or a combination of all these conditions. They can cause power outages that last for days or weeks; making it hard to keep warm and making travel very dangerous. Prepare now in case a winter storm hits, and you are home for several days without power and heat.
Find additional tips by visiting the America’s PrepareAthon! Winter Storm section and downloading the How to Prepare for a Winter Storm Guide. If you encounter any problems – call us at the hospital or clinic or come in to the ER to be seen.
