Severe Weather Preparation Tips

The American Red Cross North Central Texas Chapter has some tips to take when severe weather hits Texoma.

Assemble an emergency preparedness kit that includes warm clothes, extra blankets, sand or kitty litter and a first aid kit.

Vehicles should be weather prepared, and drivers should fill up the gas tanks.

Heed storm warnings. A "winter watch" means severe weather is possible within the next 36 to 48 hours. A "winter warning" means the conditions have already begun.
