The American Red Cross and AAA are offering safety tips ahead of a winter storm that is expected to drop temperatures and bring a wintry mix of snow, ice and sleet.


The Red Cross says people should prepare a storm kit that includes warm clothes, blankets, first-aid kit, canned food and water. Cars should be winterized and gas tanks full. Homes should be insulated and water should run to prevent pipes from freezing.

AAA is urging residents to drive slowly on roads and accelerate and decelerate cautiously.

And the easiest way to stay safe during a winter storm? Stay at home. AAA says that if someone doesn't have to go out, they shouldn't.
