Severe winter weather is predicted to hit the majority of the Midwest this weekend, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is urging residents and business owners to be prepared for everything, including icy roads and power outages. Beth Freeman, administrator of the Kansas City, Mo. office of FEMA says they want to be sure that people are taking this storm seriously. “Preparing for an emergency before it strikes,” she said, “can literally save your life or property.” Officials have been monitoring the development of the winter storm which they say could become dangerous very quickly with impactful ice accumulations, which will cause treacherous road conditions, damage to structures and power outages. Officials say to have a plan in place, and that includes gathering emergency supplies for your home and vehicle, monitoring media for updated storm information and following directives put out by state and local authorities.
