Mid-Michigan prepares for winter storm Saturday night

Posted:
MICHIGAN (WJRT) -

(01/04/14) - Grocery stores across Mid-Michigan were packed Saturday as people prepared for the winter storm predicted to hit this weekend.

Lines stretched to the back of the store causing some people to wait up to an hour.

To prepare for storms like this FEMA says to stock up on bottled water, shovels, rock salt, batteries, winter gear, and extra blankets. FEMA also says it is a good idea to stock up on fire wood and heating fuel.

People are not just stocking their pantries, they are stocking their garages.

In preparation for this weekend's winter storm, many people are getting generators and snow blowers.

Beutler's Lawn and Garden in Grand Blanc Township told us that they are working over time to repair generators and snow blowers before the storm hits.
