NORTHWOODS - We could see freezing rain in the Northwoods Sunday. If we do, leaders in Oneida County want people to be prepared.
The Oneida County Emergency Management director says it's hard to tell when the roads are slippery. So they want you to take your time on the roads and on the sidewalks.
"Freezing rain, a lot of times you can't tell that it's actually frozen. The ground is frozen," said Oneida County Emergency Management director Ken Kortenhof. "So even when you're walking on your sidewalks, stuff like that, be careful not to slip. Make sure if you have salt you can salt your sidewalks so you don't have problems there as well."
With holiday travels coming soon, a lot of people will be hitting the roads. Not only will you want to prepare for possible traffic, but for that possible layer of black ice.
"Be aware of the weather conditions, where you have to travel to and find out if the roads are slippery on your way to where ever you have to go," Kortenhof said. "Just be careful and again take your time. Let somebody know where you're going."
If you do happen to get into an accident, make sure you have a cellphone with you.
