Winter storm making travel hazardous
MILWAUKEE (AP) – Sheriff’s officials in at least one county were advising motorists to stay home as a winter storm made travel dangerous and closed schools in eastern Wisconsin. Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday. The storm that paralyzed parts of the nation’s midsection is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in counties near Lake Michigan and up to 6 inches in counties away from the lake. Sheboygan County received 14 inches and sheriff’s deputies issued a no travel advisory. Lt. Mark Rupnik says they have at least 10 calls for stuck vehicles they haven’t been able to get to. He says people have been abandoning their vehicles. The heavy snow also caused power outages in the Milwaukee area.
