Winter weather awareness time
Potter County Emergency Manager Cheryl Sautner reminds residents that the weather can change at any time.
She stressed that a storm watch means that hazardous conditions are expected in the next 12 to 36 hours, and storm warning means the conditions now exist.
Use basic good sense. Stay inside during a blizzard, and if you must go outside dress warmly in layers. Keep emergency supplies in the vehicle and be prepared for the unexpected.
