Air, Ground Travel Major Concerns Ahead of Storm
OMAHA, Neb. -- Hours before a powerful winter storm slams the metro, Public Works trucks were busy.
Wednesday night, drivers sprayed brine on residential streets to keep them from icing over.
"Essentially putting down a salt brine ahead of the storm event so that we can potentially eliminate the bond between the snow and the pavement," Omaha Public Works Director Bob Stubbe said.
Traveling by car isn't the only concern. United Airlines already canceled several flights leaving Eppley after 9 a.m. Thursday.
