Ritchie County OES Asks Residents To Begin Preparing For Winter Storm

Posted: Updated:

The Ritchie County Office of Emergency Services is asking that residents get prepared for the upcoming storm.

James White, director, said to make sure you have sufficient supplies such as gasoline, food, water, batteries, medications, etc.

It is also important to be prepared for any power outages that may occur, White said. If it does, it is important to check with your local fire department or emergency squad for any updates.

Each emergency squad is equipped with a phone that dials 911, White said.

Ritchie County OES said traveling is not recommended beginning Sunday afternoon, as the rain will change to ice, and eventually into heavy wet snow.
