Friday night proved pretty uneventful with the public heeding warnings to stay of the roads, said Deputy EMA director for Pickens County Rodney Buckingham.
“I want to thank the public; they heeded warning and stayed home,” he said. “I am not aware of any serious problems that occurred.
Buckingham was also quick to praise the work of the county road crews, and emergency personnel. “The county road crews were quick to get to the trouble spots and do what they could with the conditions. Our fire and sheriff personnel took care of downed trees on the roads. They all pitched in and worked together. It’s one of the great things about living in Pickens County.”
For tonight: Buckingham said things are definitely melting off with the sun, but cautioned the temperatures are not predicted to get above freezing until Sunday afternoon. He said all this moisture will likely freeze up again.
All roads are open as of about 11 a.m. Saturday, but there are going be icy patches.
