BURKE COUNTY, N.C. - Road crews in Burke County were out first thing Monday morning trying to keep Interstate 40 safe from the approaching storm.
By 11 a.m., the Department of Transportation had sprayed brine on much of the interstate and on all of the overpasses near Morganton.
Light rain that fell Monday could hamper their efforts by washing away the salt-water mixture.
Road crews in Hickory have been told to be ready to work extra hours this week once the storm starts.
