Virginia Power has some tips for you in case your power does go out.
Treat all downed lines as live and dangerous.
If you lose power, turn off appliances that might be safety hazards should power be restored while they're left unattended.
Have bottled water, a manual can opener, a wind up clock, canned and dried food on hand.
And keep a flashlight, battery powered radio, first aid kit, and matches nearby.
Collapsed roofs like the one that happened earlier this week in Roanoke, are another safety hazard with snow and ice on the way.
Some places, like Roanoke College, are already taking precautions, by blocking access to the Bast Center, its main sports arena. ))
