Here’s what to do:

Here’s how to help on Twitter:

Look out your window, and describe what you’re seeing. Tweet it, including your general location and #WTOP in your under-140 character Twitter message.

That way, anyone using Twitter who searches #WTOP will find your helpful heads-up, and know what to expect if they’ll be heading your way.

The WTOP newsroom also will be monitoring #WTOP, so your tweet can be integrated into WTOP’s on-air and online coverage.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, snap one and include it in your tweet. Once you download your mobile Twitter app, you’ll see how to easily attach a photo. And don’t forget to use #WTOP in your tweet.
