OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Icy, wet, and cold are what Wednesday’s wintry conditions consisted of.

Mike Miller works for Nolan Transportation in York, Nebraska. He’s traveled miles to deliver some shipments. On his way to Omaha, he said the roads were starting to ice because of that he had to stop at a gas station for a bit until the roads were clear to drive again. As a veteran trucker, he’s stocked up on food and water and advises those who need to leave their house to do the same.

“If you don’t feel comfortable going out there stay wherever you’re at because it’s not worth getting yourself hurt or killed over,” Miller said.

David Squires is another truck driver who works for Hansen Company. He urged drivers to slow down and take their time.

“If you’re driving constantly passing semis that are going slower you might want to reevaluate whether you are going too fast,” Squires said.
