National Guard on standby during winter storm

Published On: Feb 13 2014 10:09:41 PM CST

As road conditions worsened Wednesday night the National Guard was placed on standby to help drivers in need.

Units and multi-purpose vehicles were called and were ready in Greene County, Jefferson County, Cookeville, and Kingsport.

Tennessee's National Guard emergency operations center and armories were  opened to be used as shelters.

But after all the preparations we're told only two of the units were needed.
