Residents in Northwest Florida prepare for winter weather

ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) - Emergency management officials in Escambia County, Florida say crews are on call and ready to go just in case anything happens.

Authorities say sand trucks are also ready to go.

Resident Michael Daw says winter weather can be paralyzing for the area.

"People here are not used to it at all," Daw said. "We had a 'snowmaggedon' a couple of years ago. I was stuck in my house for a few days and I could not go to work."

Resident Colton Muth says he has all his winter clothing ready to go.

"Layer," Muth said. "I'm from the Midwest and you just put on layers."

Authorities say they will make emergency decisions as the weather comes.
