Winter storms can bring snow, sleet, and freezing rain across the entire United States and its territories. Thousands of people are injured or killed every year in traffic accidents related to slippery roads from winter storms.
If you must go to a shelter, follow the CDC guidance to lower the risk of spreading infection:
Prepare for the storm by creating an Emergency Supply Kit or making an emergency plan.
Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept. In case you are stranded, keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car.
Keep your gas tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Try not to travel alone, and be sure to let someone know your travel plans – your timetable and route.
