Sand trucks prepare for cold weather

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Around East Texas, crews are wasting no time preparing for any problems this weather could bring. Tx-Dot and the City of Tyler both spent the day filling sand trucks and making sure they are ready to go. In addition to the trucks already filled, officials say they are ready to put more trucks on standby should the need arise.

"We're going to keep a real close eye on the weather and see if we're going to need more," said Larry Krantz with Tx-Dot. "We're not necessarily anticipating needing them because I don't know that we're going to get cold enough temps but we'll be ready if we do."
