TULSA-- With the winter weather making its way to the area, people are stocking up ahead of the storm.

The manager of a Tulsa Reasor's store says there is inevitably a run on what some people consider the essentials like milk, bread and eggs, just before the possibility of snow.

With the winter weather making its way to the area, people are stocking up ahead of the storm.

“You start to see empty shelves the night before it probably won’t be bad but I’d rather not get out if I don’t have to,” said shopper Pam Kelly.

City crews are standing by to ensure roads are clear for those who didn’t make it to the store Friday.

The city’s salt and sand spreaders are assigned to 35 specific routes— making up more than 1,700 miles. Spreading and plowing is based on traffic counts so the busiest roads get cleared first.
