MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The Shelby County Office of Preparedness is on alert to clear icy roads as freezing rain moves into the area.
"Travel could become hazardous. Citizens need to keep a close watch on the weather," said Bob Nations, Director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon on Tuesday, January 15 for the majority of the Mid-South. Shelby County Public Works crews are already prepared to spread salt and sand should streets ice over.
Nations added that those traveling Monday night should pay close attention as ice can quickly form on bridges and overpasses.
Shelby County's new Emergency Operations Center will be activated should there be large-scale power outages or roads become impassable.
