TULSA, Okla. — State officials are urging you to stay off the roads if you can during this winter weather.
If you do get out and find yourself stranded, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and National Guard will be there to help.
The two groups are teaming up to respond to emergencies on I-44, I-40, and I-35. If you get stranded, you can call 911, and a team will head your way.
Depending on conditions and the number of calls, it could take a team several hours to get to you.
"Be mindful if you're traveling on this. We have to travel in the same conditions to come get you," said Eric Foster with Oklahoma Highway Patrol. "And so it can be very dangerous. It might take a long time for us to get there."
If you do get out on the roads, be sure to have supplies in your car to keep yourself safe and warm if you run into trouble and need to wait for help.
