Winter preparedness: Are you ready?

(WVVA)- Last year's derecho and Superstorm Sandy really put storm preparation into the spotlight.

Many watched as the derecho blasted the Two Virginias with strong wind and heavy rain.

Then Sandy dumped feet of snow over our area.

Both events knocked out power to thousands.

Many power companies, including AEP, learned a lot from 2012 and are now preparing for the next winter season.

Be sure to join us tonight on WVVA News at six where we talk about what you can do to prepare yourself for this upcoming winter.
