COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) β€” Winter weather preparedness week is kicking off in South Carolina with officials asking resident to check supplies now.

The state Emergency Management Division said even though winters are usually mild in South Carolina, the state can get big snows or ice storms.

The agency says residents need to check fuel supplies to make it through long power outages and make sure their pipes are insulated so they don’t freeze.
