The Missouri State Highway Patrol is urging all drivers to be prepared if traveling during the extreme cold tonight [Tuesday] and tomorrow. [Wednesday]
Troopers suggest keeping gas tanks at least half full in case drivers get stranded. This will provide for some warmth.
The Highway Patrol says having a safety kit that includes battery booster cables, blankets, extra coats, gloves, water, non-perishable food and a flashlight is strongly advised.
Last, before traveling ensure that cell phones are fully charged to call for help.
