Catawba County Emergency Management has received questions about the extremely cold weather expected over the next two nights and what kinds of things citizens should consider."Questions always arise when the weather is predicted to be bitterly cold about safety for those outside waiting for buses, or working outside," said Karyn Yaussy, Catawba County Emergency Management Coordinator.
"The following are for your information but we urge you to stay on top of changing weather conditions by monitoring local TV and radio stations (Charlotte or Hickory) or an internet source such as the National Weather Service."The National Weather Service forecast for Catawba County calls for low temperatures in the single digits on the morning of January 24 and lows below 20 on the morning of January 25.
"If you experience a power outage, do not call 911.
Those phone lines must remain available for life threatening emergency calls" Yaussy said.
