Jones Told Newsweek that Texans should visit "the stores and gas stations in advance to simply reduce traffic flow the day of the event and manage individuals' expectations that we will have a few more visitors in our county than normal."

He further stated 'I always encourage [people] to keep your fuel tanks filled [half] tank or better as a standard practice." Travis and Kendall County in Texas have also put out disaster declarations for the day in question.
