Winter Weather Resources

The Town of Leland is preparing for potential winter weather this week. Town facilities, including Town Hall, the Leland Cultural Arts Center, and the Municipal Operations Center, will be closed Friday and Saturday, Jan. 21 and 22.

The forecast is calling for an ice storm that has the potential to create dangerous travel conditions and lead to power outages. Town of Leland Public Safety officials encourage community members to be prepared, stay safe, and keep the following safety tips in mind:

  • Stay home and off the roads.
  • If you must go out, slow down, give space, assume anything that looks wet is ice, and be extra cautious on bridges and overpasses.
  • Be aware that four-wheel drive isn’t effective on ice.
  • Keep devices charged.
  • Build or update your emergency supply kit.
  • Don’t put generators inside your home. Keep them outside due to carbon monoxide.
  • Be prepared for long-duration power outages.
  • Trim weak or damaged branches around your home.
  • Don’t leave vehicle wipers raised.
  • Don’t park your car under trees.

More preparedness tips are available through NC Emergency Management, Ready.gov, and the Red Cross.
