CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, January 12, 2017 Page says to stay aware and get prepared As the temperature is dropping, the high risk of winter storms are rising. Just as the frigid weather is approaching our area, too many people are left unpre- pared. One of the main rea- sons for this is because most people think that snowstorms are all fun and games, however Jack Frost doesn't always play fair. Did you know that it doesn't actually have to be snowing for there to be a blizzard? That's right! Even if there's no snow, there can still be a blizzard! The classification for a blizzard is when for 3 hours or more we have per- sistent winds or gusts of wind reaching at least 35 miles per hour. With that being said, that technically means a blizzard could hit even after the snowstorm is over So the real question is, would you be prepared? If you take precautions to ready yourself for these freezing conditions, you will thank yourself in the end.
