Orange Alert Buying in Longview

In Longview, many are heeding the recent warnings by purchasing items that we might not ordinarily think about. Duct tape and wrapping plastic were selling well along with batteries. But stores like the Army-Navy Store, have seen brisk sells on more unusual items like gas masks. Another Longview store, Horaney's, has seen cast-iron cookware, pots, pans, and open fire equipment sell well. Despite the sales, so far, stores say they have not seen panic buying. A final note from FEMA-- If you have purchased a gas-powered generator for your home, never use it inside. Doing so, could put your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
