Winter Storm Warning in Effect. What You Need To Know.
Roads crews all over metro Detroit are preparing for the winter storm that is among us. It has already been advised not to go out today (Feb. 22) if you do not need to. Work from home if you can. The conditions are being monitored throughout the county, and people will be ready to move as soon as it time for them to hit the road. Wayne County Deputy Director Scott Cabauatan spoke to reporters about the upcoming snow storm and said, “The good thing about this storm is that we’re going to have great temperatures for salt to work. “We’re not going to be fighting zero temperatures where salt isn’t as effective. We’re going to have a really good ability to get salt down and have it work really well." Snowfall will be heavier north of I-69, there will be a wintry mix along/between I-69 and I-94, and near the Ohio border a rain-wintry mix is more likely. We expect the heaviest precipitation to arrive around noon or 1pm on Wednesday. The DTE incident command center has already been activated, with more than 200 repair teams available to assist, as well as more than 1,500 workers in the field, along with 400 out-of-state workers on stand-by just in case. As always be safe on the roads and prepare accordingly. If possible work from home and if you do have to leave, make sure to leave about 30-40 minuets early to get to your destination.
