PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Talking about what to do if you find yourself stranded during a winter storm, Sheriff Rick Woodyard says:

1. Pull-off to the farthest right part of the road

2. Call 9-1-1

3. Remain in your vehicle until help arrives.

Woodyards says “getting out on foot and (trying) to go to the nearest interchange... is not really advisable in that kind of weather.”
