Be prepared when outdoors when our area is experiencing cold wind chills. Wear appropriate clothing, hat, and gloves, also cover exposed skin to prevent frostbite.

Mostly clear skies, lighter winds and the fresh snow cover will allow temperatures to plunge tonight. Look for readings to drop into the 10 below to 15 below zero range central Wisconsin, zero to 5 below range eastern Wisconsin. Wind chills are expected to fall into the 15 below to 30 below zero range by daybreak, thereby bringing potentially dangerous conditions to the area. Make sure to cover any exposed skin as frostbite may occur in under 30 minutes.

Just an inch of water in a home can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Going without flood insurance is not worth the risk. Or the wait. Call your local insurance agent or visit FloodSmart.Gov to ensure that you have the coverage you need before the snow melts and the rains fall. #FloodInsuranceAwarenessWeek #OCI #DNR

No time like the present to review what your home insurance or renter insurance covers.

No time like the present to review what your home insurance or renter insurance covers.

Last year was the wettest on record in Wisconsin. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration anticipates an increased likelihood of spring flooding throughout Wisconsin in 2020 due to melting snowpack sitting upon already saturated soils. Before the snow melts and the rains fall, take a moment to review your insurance coverage and see if you are covered for flood damage. If you need coverage, call your local insurance agent today or visit FloodSmart.Gov to learn more. #FloodInsuranceAwarenessWeek #OCI #DNR

Great tip provided by Calumet County Emergency Management!

Safe Winter Driving Tip #2: As the outside temperature drops, so does tire inflation pressure. Make sure each tire is filled to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressure, which is listed in your owner’s manual and on a placard located on the driver's side door frame. The correct pressure is NOT the number listed on the tire.
