Salt trucks load up to treat roadways.

Winter Storm Watch for southwest Miami Valley early Saturday; accumulation likely

Centerville has plenty of salt left in their salt storages this year, but the city has also started to pre-treat roads with a mix of ice-be-gone and brine.

We also talked with some businesses in the area who said that their amount of customers has been negatively impacted by the recent snow and threat of winter storms.

Jessica Denny of Julie’s Hair Attractions and Nails stated, “They're kind of over it. they have a hard time getting out and some of them have been canceling because of the weather and afraid of what's to come.”

We will have more information about road preparation from cities around the Miami Valley on News Center 7 beginning at 5 p.m.
