Though Chen says this year's flu shot is weaker than in years past, but says that shouldn't mean a person doesn't get it. Flu symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

The department says it now has over 229,000 tons of salt and more than 1.6 million gallons of salt brine ready for use. Salt brine is a salt-water mixture used as a pre-treatment for roads prior to a winter storm or to melt snow on roadways when temperatures are hovering around the freezing mark.
