City Of Wichita Falls Prepares For Winter Storm

The winter storm hitting Texoma is nothing but a waiting game for those in charge of keeping our roads clear and safe.

"You plan for the worst and expect the best. That's what you're doing. You have no idea," said Larry Krugle, the street superintendent of Wichita Falls.

It's hard to say how much snow Wichita falls will get but workers from the city's street department have loaded 3 snow plows on dump trucks. Two graders are also ready to go in case crews need to head out and start clearing our roads.

Krugle says, "We sent people home knowing that they'll probably have to work this evening and we're starting 12 hour shifts starting at 7 tonight until 7 in the morning."

If necessary, Monday morning's crew would get called in to work an extra shift. If snow accumulates the city would focus on removing it from the major streets and areas where emergency service facilities are located. That's why Krugle urges Texomans to stay home and not drive unless it's necessary. That's not only for your safety but also for the safety of crew workers.

"You have to look out for the other person so it makes it a little harder if you're the person putting down ice chad, running a blade or plowing because you have to look out for the other people. You have to concentrate on what you're doing and watch out for them," said Krugle.
