The National Guard is assisting local law enforcement agencies in checking vehicles parked along roads and taking stranded motorists to local shelters. Three teams are traveling interstates in large capacity high clearance vehicles. When all interstates have been checked, the teams will begin checking other major roads. People who are in vehicles should look for the teams and accept a ride to the shelter. Drivers should make their own plans to reclaim their vehicles when it is safe to do so. Wake County has three shelters available for people impacted by winter weather.
The Wake County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is at level three. This means that equipment and personnel are responding and the EOC is staffed on a continual basis. People in need of non-emergency assistance can call the EOC at 919-856-7044. Remember to call 9-1-1 for emergencies.
