... Safety rules for heavy snow...

The National Weather Service in North Dakota has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for heavy snow. Snow accumulations of six inches or
more are forecast for the warned area.

Heavy snow can immobilize a region and paralyze a city, stranding
commuters, stopping the flow of supplies, and disrupting
emergency and medical services.

Accumulations of snow can collapse the roofs of buildings and
bring down trees and power lines. In rural areas, homes and farms
may be isolated for days, and unprotected livestock may be lost.

Avoid overexertion, such as shoveling heavy snow, pushing a car,
or walking in deep snow. The strain from the cold and the hard
labor may cause a heart attack. Overexposure could lead to
hypothermia.

If you must go outside, dress in layers of loose-fitting, light
weight, warm clothing.

If you must drive, allow extra time to reach your destination.
Remember that roads could be blocked in rural areas.

If you become trapped in your car, stay put and make yourself
visible to rescuers. Exercise from time to time by vigorously
moving arms, legs, fingers, and toes to keep blood circulating
and to keep warm. Do not eat snow! It will lower your body
temperature. Melt the snow first.
