As the heart of the major winter storm moves into Kansas later today, the Kansas Department of Emergency Management has some tips that can help you stay safe.
If you lose power at your home, they recommend you have enough non-perishable food, water, medications and other essentials to last atleast three days.
"If you have a home generator, make sure you have enough fuel. If not, be sure you have a safe, alternate heat source," says Angee Morgan, deputy director of the Kansas Department of Emergency Management.
If you have to travel during the storm, you should have a charged cell phone and a full gas tank. A shovel is also helpful in case your vehicle becomes stuck in the snow.
"Make sure someone knows where you are going, the route you are taking and when you are expected to arrive," Morgan said.
