To the Citizens of Wythe County
Wythe County could experience another winter weather event this coming weekend. At this time, predictions are still varying on the impact to our area.
Wythe County wants you to be prepared. Please make sure you have supplies in case the roads become dangerous or if power outages occur. Be prepared by having a food supply, water supply, batteries, warm clothes and blankets, an alternate source of power or heat, and/or a place to be with a generator. When the accumulation begins and the roads become difficult to travel on, please only travel if necessary. Colder temperatures will also be another issue. Please stay warm and check on your neighbors to make sure everyone stays warm. Additionally, please plan for pets that are outside in the colder temperatures.
Please keep yourself informed of any changes that are occurring due to the weather. Watch or listen to local stations and watch the Wythe County Facebook page and homepage for updates. We will keep you informed as things change. Watch local media for closures and cancellations that might occur due to the weather. If you have any questions please visit wytheco.org for further information. Let’s stay safe and informed.
