The current Winter Storm Watch for several counties in Arkansas, including Conway County and Faulkner County means it is time to prepare for the possibility of some severe weather in our area.
The weather channel has sent an alert out saying that a high impact winter storm is expected to move over Arkansas from Sunday through Monday evening. There is snowfall expected along with sleet and freezing rain. This could impact several things in your home and business, here is just a few:
- Burst Pipes-Freezing temperatures can cause pipes to burst due to pressure buildup. Unheated areas and uninsulated areas are at the most risk. Opening the faucet to a trickle can keep the pressure from building up.
- Fallen Tree Limbs-Freezing rain can damage trees due to the weight of the ice accumulation. Falling branches can damage your roof, siding and gutter system. They can also fall on power lines, creating a fire hazard. And power lines can be affected by the ice buildup from the freezing rain causing electrical outages.
