(Neb)-Local Officials Urge Storm Preparation And Staying Home
Dawes County, Chadron and Crawford Government Officials are asking the Public to please prepare for the SEVERE WINTER STORM that is forecast for our area.
We believe that this will be a very severe storm and ask that people prepare ahead of the storm. Preparations may include food, water and other possible essential needs. Especially any MEDICAL NEEDS you or a family member may have.
Beginning about 3am on Wednesday morning we may have rain turning to freezing rain. The roads will be very bad and icy. This will be followed by up to 18 inches of snow within the next 24 hrs. Travel will be basically impossible.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND that any travel that is planned begin as soon as possible before sunset tonight.
WE ALSO REQUEST ABSOLUTELY NO TRAVEL AFTER 12AM TONIGHT!!!!
There is a very strong likelihood that if you do travel and get stuck, lost or stranded in any way on the roads or highway, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ASSIST YOU and get you to safety.
If you must travel, please be sure that you have plenty of fuel, food, heat source, water etc. in case you do get stranded --- YOU MAY BE THERE FROM A FEW HOURS TO A FEW DAYS.
We will all be very busy and ask that you be mindful of the fact that we MAY NOT have the resourses to assist you…. SO PLEASE SHELTER IN PLACE AND PREPARE NOW,
