National Weather Service advice on dealing with snowstorm

The forecast says snow will come, the only question is how much. The Tulsa area has dodged most of the extreme winter weather in the last two years but it looks like this storm could make up for some of that.

 

Because it's been a while the National Weather Service released their tips and advice to being out front of the storm, find those below.

 

Have a plan –

Each family should have a plan of how you will deal with ice, snow, and frigid cold weather. Think about it now before you really need to put the plan into action.

Keep up with the weather if you have travel plans –

 

Keep up with the weather if you have travel plans –

If winter precipitation is forecast, you might consider delaying the trip to avoid being caught in a dangerous situation. Even small amounts of freezing drizzle, sleet or snow can cause significant travel problems.

Develop and maintain an emergency supplies kit –

A winter storm safety kit will be critical should a winter storm cause you to lose electrical power and/or water service. A three-day supply of essential supplies, including water and food for the family, batteries, flashlights and medical supplies, should be in place and checked frequently. This supply kit will be the same one you should have on hand during tornado season. In addition, if you have to travel this winter you should have an emergency survival kit in your vehicle as well.

Pay attention to NWS watches, warnings and advisories –

NWS offices serving the people of Oklahoma work hard to get the word out as far in advance as possible when winter storms approach. Whether you get your information from television and radio, the Internet or weather radio, you should keep up to date on the latest forecasts and warnings.

Get a battery operated weather radio –

One of the items that should be in everyone’s disaster supplies kit is a battery operated weather radio. Weather radio is a service of your National Weather Service office and provides round the clock weather information, including all the latest winter weather information.

  • A woman is arrested for child endangerment after her young son is found wandering through an apartment complex. We're told Jana Clem had forgotten to lock the door after she took her prescription medications Thursday at the Chapel Ridge Apartments. Someone called Rogers County deputies after finding the 4-year old alone. Clem said she didn't realize that the boy had left their apartment.
  • A Tulsa man is dead after pointing a gun at a police officer during a traffic stop. We're told 52-year old Joshua Daniels was shot early Thursday near Neosho, Missouri after he tried to drive away from a police traffic stop for a second time. Neosho police say Daniels may have been intoxicated.
  • Rogers County deputies are investigating the report of a woman leaving her two children inside a parked car during the day Thursday. We're told Crystal Shell had left the car operating with the air conditioner on and parked at the county courthouse. Deputies informed her that, even so, her actions were too dangerous. When deputies ran an identity check on Shell, she was arrested for having outstanding warrants.
  • Yes, the airlines are taking what many agree is well-deserved flack lately, but passengers are not all angels. The Telegraph reports that flight attendants list some of passengers’ most annoying traits on a Facebook group. Those traits include taking forever to decide what drink you want (especially when you've seen the cart coming down the aisle for 10 minutes). Physically poking a flight attendant to get their attention, instead of just saying, 'excuse me,' is a major annoyance. Asking to borrow a pen for customs forms doesn’t go over well. And handing flight attendants, tissues, toothpicks, and (believe it or not) dirty diapers, actually happens. Put 'em in the barf bag, attendants say. You can read more about the story from the Telegraph here.
  • A rare baby Amur tiger cub at a zoo in Philadelphia was neglected by its mother after its birth earlier this month. The cub named Zoya, which means 'life' in Russian, is being sent to the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. Zoya will integrate with a tiger cub litter there. The Philadelphia Zoo says 10-year-old Koosaka gave birth July 10 to a litter of five cubs.  Two were stillborn and one was accidentally injured by the mother and died.  The zoo says the mother never showed maternal behavior toward the remaining cubs and they were moved to the zoo's animal hospital, where the fourth died. Amur tigers, also called Siberian tigers, are endangered in the wild. They're found in eastern Russia and northeastern China.
