Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
630 AM EST Sat Nov 17 2018

This has been Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. The
National Weather Service, with our partners in state and local
government and the Red Cross urge you to be prepared for winter. It
is your responsibility to ensure you have plans and act safely when
hazardous weather occurs. We encourage all Hoosiers to be prepared
and do your part for a Weather-Ready Nation.

Though we do not know how bad this winter will be, we do know cold
and some snow or freezing rain events will cause problems for us.
Being prepared and having a plan and reacting properly will help
minimize the impact of weather.

Remember National Weather Service Outlooks and Watches give you
early notice on storm potential days in advance. National Weather
Service Warnings and Advisories mean weather is likely to cause you
problems and you should consider if this may require you to change
plans.

Some winter weather related deaths result from exposure to cold so
dress appropriately. Most winter weather related deaths are from
auto accidents on slippery roads so drive with more caution when
roads are bad. Other deaths result from fires due to overloaded
electrical circuits so do not plug too many items into an outlet.
Poorly maintained heating systems also lead to deaths by fire or by
carbon monoxide poisoning. Have your furnace and chimney checked by
professionals for proper operation and venting.

Have adequate supplies available at home, at work, on the farm, or
in your vehicle to last at least three days. Have alternate sources
of heat and power available. Have multiple sources of weather
information available. Always consider changing plans when the
weather is expected to turn bad.

The best way to stay safe during winter is to be prepared, use
common sense and caution. Listen to NOAA weather radio or commercial
radio or television for the latest information. Take action when the
National Weather Service issues a Watch or a Warning or Advisory.
