Blizzard warnings prompted some Queens residents to stock up on supplies.

As blizzard warnings have everyone getting ready to hunker down, Queens residents, and visitors, are flocking to the stores for any last-minute supplies.

Despite a relatively low volume of shoppers at the Walbaums in Bay Terrace, carts were packed to the gills with any weekend needs including water and non-perishables.

Monica Bell, up from Georgia to visit her children, said she was picking “the normal necessities” along with any other snacks she and her kids may want.

Bell also said she’s focused on getting non-perishable foods “so if the power goes out, I don’t need to refrigerate it.”

Allison Wieczorek, of Bayside, has most of the supplies she needs, but was just heading in to get some last minute needs. Her son had not been feeling well, and she said she was just getting anything incase she can’t make it to the doctor.

Along with these needs, she was also picking up supplies for Valentine’s Day.
