What To Do Before and During an Ice Storms Disaster Supply Kit
  • The ice from ice storms can accumulate on branches, electrical wires, and other structures.  If you need to go outside after ice has accumulated, pay attention to branches or wires that can collapse under the ice that has been accumulated.  Stay on guard because large chunks of ice can fall from roofs.
  • Never touch electrical wires.  A hanging wire can still be live with current and can electrocute you.  Keep in mind that ice, branches, and electrical wires can continue to fall several hours after the precipitation ends.
  • Remember that freezing rain, even in small quantities, can make roads very slippery.  It is a good idea to avoid driving during freezing rain and for several hours after the storm, in order to allow maintenance teams time to spread sand and salt on the icy roads.
  • The quick onset of an ice storm, coupled with the risk of a blizzard increased the possibility of extreme hypothermia.  If you have a farm, quickly shelter your animals and make sure to supply them with food.  Often, during an ice storm and immediately after, feed is temporarily inaccessible.  Animals’ reactions are similar during an ice storm and blizzards.
