On Thursday Augusta County Sheriff Donald Smith urged the community to be prepared for the impending snowstorm:
As we brace for the storm to move into Augusta County on Friday morning and possibly last into Sunday, we as a community need to pull together.
Please plan accordingly and stay off the roads as workers plow to open the highways.
Stock up on supplies ahead of the storm.
Be mindful of the elderly and please keep a check on family members and neighbors that may not have family close to the area.
Please bring pets inside and don’t leave them out in this extreme storm.
Stay off the highways if at all possible once the storm starts.
The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office and first responders will be working diligently to keep the county safe and provide service. Please help us as much as possible by staying inside and keeping a check on loved ones and neighbors. Stay safe everyone and call us if you need us!
Stay safe out there.
