It doesn’t happen often, but North and South Carolina can be impacted by severe winter weather. And we don’t have to
get a foot of snow for a storm to be dangerous. Whether it’s a snow storm or just freezing temperatures and a thin

lose power, become stranded, or have to drive in difficult conditions because of a winter storm. Get information that
will help you be prepared this year.
Don’t return to your local area until officials say it is safe to do so. Keep in mind that roads and bridges may
be damaged. To verify road conditions, call:
In South Carolina, visit the SC Emergency
Management Division website for a list of shelters or download the SC Emergency Manager app to find your
zone based on GPS or by entering a physical address. Get the free app in the Apple Store or on Google Play.
