A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
The ice storm aftermath means a lot of clean-up for many residents. Insurance companies urge residents to contact an adjuster before making any permanent repairs.
There could be some rules when it comes to making those permanent repairs before contacting your insurance company, as well as making repairs to your vehicle.
The Better Business Bureau also warns against potential scam artists trying to make an extra buck on cleaning up debris.
You can contact the BBB or the Attorney Generals Office to make sure any service is legit.
