NCDOT Prepares For Wintry Mix
Areas of Haywood County could be hit hard by this winter storm. Weather warnings have prompted many to prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.
NCDOT crews will be coming in tonight to monitor the road conditions. Because of the rain Tuesday, workers were not able to pretreat the road. But if it does start snowing, crews will immediately start putting down salt. The intestates and primary roads will be the first treated.
The threat of high winds has power crews on standby. Officials with Duke Energy Progress says they too are watching and monitoring the storm. They are telling folks that if you see any power lines on the ground to treat it like it's live and call 911 or your power company. Also if you don't need to be out, stay at home.
