Next Board Of Education Meeting December 17
Roads are looking much better thanks to the fantastic efforts of NCDOT. Power is coming on steadily around the county, but many still wait for power to be restored. Huge thanks to all the linemen working on this as well.
While roads have improved, several highways and secondary roads have piles of snow near the edges, making two-lane traffic (especially buses) challenging.
Even more problematic is thawing today which will result in runoff across road surfaces overnight. This will refreeze between 7pm tonight and 10am tomorrow, causing dangerous black ice conditions.
In case of emergency, shelters are now open as many families wait for their power to be restored. First responders are checking in on our vulnerable neighbors, and transportation may be available to assist those in need. View all this and more on our Weather Preparedness page here: www.tcsnc.org/weather.
If anyone needs shelter on any night with temperatures below 30, or when snow and ice are present, please follow this link for information about Code Purple to help them remain safe. Registration is open 4pm-8pm, and guests may stay until 8am the next morning. The location is next to Brevard Community Church. Call 877-2040 or 553-4726 for details.
