Smart Talk: Winter storm information

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | Feb 13, 2014 8:21 AM

What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, February 13, 2014:

Thursday's Smart Talk will provide 60 minutes worth of the latest information on the massive winter storm covering eastern Pennsylvania.

As we speak, the snow is falling at a rate of about an inch an hour over most of the area.  By the time it stops, there could anywhere from six to 15 inches of snow on the ground.

During today's program, we'll get an update on conditions across the region and state from Glenn Cannon, the director of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.  The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will provide a glimpse at the roads and any restrictions that are in place.

The state's Physician General will have a few tips on how to stay safe during the cold and wintry weather -- even if it is just how to keep from getting sore or hurting yourself while shoveling snow.

In what may be the most anticipated part of the program, we'll get the latest weather information and forecast from the National Weather Service.

During the show, we'd like to hear from you as well.  What do you see outside your window?

    Winter storm is a problem. It leads to numerous crashes on the roads, while strong winds caused scattered power outages and contributed to shutting down and destructed homes. If you are coping with broken water lines in your basement after the winter, you may need a payday loan cash loan to take care of it all. If you are not careful, your pipes can freeze with water in them in the winter.
