Winter Storm Safety

It doesn’t happen often, but North and South Carolina can be impacted by severe winter weather. And we don’t have to get a foot of snow for a storm to be dangerous. Whether it’s a snow storm or just freezing temperatures and a thin layer of ice, it’s important to be ready for anything Mother Nature throws your way. There is always the potential to lose power, become stranded, or have to drive in difficult conditions because of a winter storm. Get information that will help you be prepared this year.

AAA Carolinas offers free vehicle safety inspections for its members. Visit a Car Care center to ensure your vehicle is prepared for winter driving.

If you and your family want to make plans to leave town instead of riding out a winter storm, AAA Travel can assist with booking flights or securing hotel room reservations.

Road Conditions
For members using our routing tool on AAA.com to help navigate road closures, keep in mind that it is updated regularly but not always updated immediately. To avoid being routed to closed roads please check www.ncdot.gov and www.scdot.org websites for road conditions and closures first. The DOT websites are the best source for up to the minute road closures. Or visit your local AAA office to get help with routing.

Don’t return to your local area until officials say it is safe to do so. Keep in mind that roads and bridges may be damaged. To verify road conditions, call:

Shelters
