Where in the World Can You Find Rock Salt?

    It's hard out here for suburban Philadelphia communities trying to rebound after last week's ice storm.

    Due to pressing demand, rock salt is hard to come by. Many area major retail stores and small hardware stores are out of stock. In addition to managing residential power loss, it's equally challenging for homeowners to maintain one's property. Rock salt is a winter staple presently with limited supply in the region.

    Have you found rock salt stocked in your community? 

    If so, share the location of the store you found it at by tweeting #GotSalt. NBC10 will share the information with viewers.
