Wichita Falls Police say so far, fewer crashes were reported Friday morning compared to the last winter storm a few weeks ago.

In Wichita Falls, TXDOT and city road crews spent the night working to make roadways a little safer for drivers. Officials say there was not enough snow for the city to use plows, but crews spread chat over 50 miles of roads inside the city limits. They will continue spreading chat today on priority areas and high traveled roads and hills.

Police say streets are still incredibly dangerous. They're asking everyone to stay home if possible, avoiding travel unless absolutely necessary

Officer Jeff Hughes says, “We do have crews out working, but we're asking everyone to stay off the roadways. Stay home and stay warm.”

If you do have to get out today, be sure you have an emergency kit in your car with blankets, food, water, your phone charger, a first aid kit, flashlight and warm clothes.
