Harrison County EMA advises drivers to stay off the roads during wintery weather

Harrison County EMA is advising residents to not leave their houses unless it is absolutely necessary.

Staying off the roads is the best place to be with these wintry conditions, but if you have to travel give yourself extra time and drive defensively.

Also, residents need to prepare and protect their people, pets, pipes, and plants as this cold winter weather sweeps through. Harrison County EMA Director Matt Stratton said, “I encourage everybody to check on their neighbor. Make sure they’re doing alright, socially distanced, of course, because of COVID. This is a dangerous situation and everybody needs to check up on their neighbors.”

As of now, there have been no curfews announced in the county. Businesses can keep their doors open, but need to consider we are under a state of emergency.
