Preparing For The Storm
Utility and highway crews are preparing to work around the clock as more snow rolls into the mountains. NCDOT crews began spreading salt and sand early Monday morning on interstates and highways. Meanwhile, Duke Energy is mobilizing to handle any outages from the storm. They say it's best to plan ahead. Road crews urge drivers to increase their following distance as the trucks spread salt and sand. They say that material can damage vehicles if drivers try to pass them or follow too closely.
