Although winter comes as no surprise, the snow and freezing rain can cause major disruption to services we take for granted such as roads, public transit, grocery stores and emergency services. Winter storms in North Carolina can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a an ice storm that lasts for several days. Ensure sure your home, office and vehicles are stocked with extra batteries, water, non-perishable food and an emergency heat source to prepare you for the possible loss of heat, power and phone service.
