A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected. Significant amounts of snow are forecast
that will make travel dangerous. If you must travel... keep an
extra flashlight... a fully charged cell phone... food... and water in
your vehicle in case of an emergency.
Check your heating vents. Snow can cover vents... particularly
those that are low to the ground. Blocked vents can cause deadly
Carbon monoxide to enter the home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless
and odorless gas that can cause injury or death. All homeowners are
advised to have working Carbon monoxide detectors in the home and
to get out and call for help if it sounds. Symptoms of Carbon
monoxide poisoning include lethargy and nausea. If you use a
generator... use it outside away from the house.
