Inclement conditions set to linger into Tuesday

Temperatures were in the teens overnight, with a low of about 15 degrees in the forecast for Conway into Tuesday.

 

Tuesday’s high is expected to be in the low 30s, only slightly above freezing with a 20 percent of light snow Tuesday night.

To help the displaced or homeless in Conway, an area warming shelter is set up, offering services for an extended period of time.

Last Chance Ministries of Conway, located at 450 E. Robins St., has five beds available. The shelter also provides meals to those in need.

For more information, contact Trish Meeks at 501-697-1011.

Details regarding other warming centers will be announced as they become available.

The threat of travel problems will linger into the daily commute Tuesday for many in the county.

Faulkner County Sheriff Andy Shock said people should stay in their homes if they do not have to be on the roads, but those who must travel should keep their cell phones charged and carry a flashlight, blankets and water in case of an emergency.

“We call out extra manpower during situations like this, but our response times may not be as timely,” he said.

For those who are unable to travel for needed medication, the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office offers delivery of essential medications during periods of severe inclement weather.

“When people can’t get out or don’t want to get out, especially the elderly, we do this for them,” Chief Deputy Matt Rice said. “Usually, the sheriff delivers them himself.”

For delivery of essential medication and medical supplies, contact the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office at 501-450-4914.
