(SPRINGFIELD) The Illinois Emergency Management Agency continues to remind statewide residents to be prepared for more wintry weather, albeit families, homes, and vehicles. For tips and other information on staying safe at home and on the road, check the Winter Weather Preparedness Guide, developed by IEMA and the National Weather Service. It’s available on the state’s website, at www.Ready.Illinois.gov.
(OLNEY/NEWTON) The citizens of Olney and Newton are reminded to keep those designated Emergency Snow Route Streets clear of any vehicles. Drivers in Newton, Olney, and throughout our downstate region should also be aware of all city, township, county, and state snowplows and other utility vehicles as they work around the clock trying to keep our roads and highways as clear as possible. Give these trucks and vehicles plenty of space to maneuver and do their job as the wintry weather continues here in our region.
