The Roads Department in Scott County said two weeks ago, their salt barns were practically full. But now, after a barrage of snow, ice and freezing rain, they've reported supplies are nearly empty.

They said salt was ordered over a month ago, but still hasn't arrived.

They explained demand for salt is very high right now and salt suppliers are struggling to keep up.

Road crews also said the shortage isn't just affecting them, either; it's statewide.

However, they said Scott County is not in critical shape at this point and will have enough supplies to make it through an upcoming storm predicted for next week.
