Your Morning

Winter Blast III is rolling into Region 8 as this is written and parts are already experiencing heavy snowfall.  Others are yet to see any but will most likely get at least some before the day is over.  This is what we're tracking today on Region 8 News and we will have the latest throughout the day.  Until then, here are some tips in this special "Winter Blast" edition of Your Morning:

  • Significant amounts of snowfall are expected in some areas, so travel only in an emergency.
  • If you must travel, bring an extra flashlight, food, blankets and water in case your vehicle is stranded.
  • Drive slowly and keep your focus on the road.  Don't become distracted by cell phones or the radio.
  • Allow plenty of space for vehicles in front of you.  If someone is too close behind you, slow down so they can pass.
  • Drive with your lights on always!  In heavy snow conditions, you may want to use low beams
