GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Severe winter weather can strike at any time, so you'll want to be prepared.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides several tips for preparing your family and your home for winter, including putting together a winter weather emergency kit. The kit includes things like backup heat sources, ice melt, snow shovels, emergency radios and power provisions. 

According to FEMA, the National Weather Service considers winter storms "Deceptive Killers" because most of the deaths in these storms are indirectly related to them. Two of the biggest causes are motor vehicle accidents and hypothermia from too much exposure to the cold.

To help you prepare for the next big winter storm, WFMY News 2's Patrick Wright and Tom Garcia will be at a Greensboro Home Depot to show you how to put together an emergency kit for your home.
