Communities are gearing up for the winter weather.

FOX23 crews spoke to officials in Broken Arrow and they said there are about 400 tons of salt in the salt barn. They said they are ready for whatever winter weather comes their way in the next few days.

Friday maintenance crews looked over the plows and trucks in Broken Arrow to make sure they are ready.

FOX23 News found out Broken Arrow started the year with 1,200 tons of salt and 1,800 tons of sand. Crews would be on standby through the weekend and through early next week in case the roads get bad.

Broken Arrow spokesperson Stephanie Higgins said they have easy access to more if needed.

Higgins told FOX23 that so far this winter has not been difficult to handle for their crew unlike some other years.

"We haven't had any major ice storms that we've had to deal with," Broken Arrow PIO Stephanie Higgins said. "There have been a few that have been a little pesky, but you still have to deal with them in the same manner and our crews are out doing what they need to do. Normally you can get around Broken Arrow pretty well after storms like this."

City of Tulsa officials told FOX23 that they have replenished their stock of salt as well and have about 9,500 tons of salt.
