winter weather tips In Oklahoma, we’re pretty good at handling bad weather. Here at Oklahoma’s Own News On 6, we want to offer a few extra suggestions to ensure everyone is safe and warm. Chief Meteorologist Travis Meyer brings you some winter weather safety tips: • Keep a good supply of rock salt and sand (kitty litter can be substituted for sand) to help with keeping your walkways safe. • Add a snow shovel to your disaster supply kit at home for when the snow is heavy. • Store a good supply of wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove in case gas or electricity is lost. • Be sure to winterize your home by cleaning the gutters, trimming away trees, and fixing roof leaks. • Remember to keep faucets dripping during periods of cold weather to keep pipes from freezing. • In case a pipe does burst, have someone teach you how to turn off the water valves. • Have a mechanic do a winter weather safety check for your car to keep you protected. • Keep your fuel levels as full as possible, at least half a tank, in case it is hard to reach a gas station. • Place an emergency kit in your car. • Dress in warm layers with the outer layer being water repellent and carry gloves and a hat with you. • Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs when you are outside. • Please check on neighbors, friends, family and the elderly so we can keep all Oklahomans safe this winter. For a complete list of winter weather tips, kits, and more please go to NewsOn6.com/winterweather. During winter storms and extreme cold, stay with News on 6’s Travis Meyer and The Warn Team for the latest information.
