511WI| Wisconsin Traffic | Commuter Information

The Labor Day weekend is a chance to get out and enjoy one last summer adventure before the school year begins and the weather turns cooler. Whether you are staying local or taking a trip, ReadyWisconsin encourages you to make safety a priority.

“Holiday weekends can mean trips to community events, campgrounds, and tourist destinations across the state,” said Wisconsin Emergency Management administrator Dr. Darrell Williams. “It can also be a dangerous time on the roads, especially during the Labor Day period. That’s why we want everyone to take steps to ensure they have a memorable and safe weekend.”

ReadyWisconsin offers the following advice:
• Know before you go. For up-to-date information about traffic issues or road closures, visit www.511wi.gov. You can also download the free mobile app or follow @511WI on Twitter.
• Leave home at times that will allow you to avoid heavy traffic, such as before rush hour Friday or early Saturday morning. If you are returning home Monday morning, get on the road before late afternoon or after 10 p.m. to reduce traffic hassles.
• Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle with items such as a first-aid kit, bottled water, and energy bars. Have a car charger for your cell phone, in case you need to call for help.
• People and pets should never be left inside a parked car. Even with the windows cracked open, temperatures inside a vehicle can reach 100 degrees in less than 10 minutes on an average summer day.
• If you are spending time outdoors, check the forecast before you head out and make sure you have a way to receive alerts about any approaching severe weather. Carry a portable weather radio or keep a weather app loaded on your cell phone.
• If you are celebrating at home, remember to never leave a lit grill unattended and keep a fire extinguisher nearby. If you have been drinking, never get behind the wheel of a car.

STAY SAFE DURING THe EXTREME HEAT WE WILL EXPERIENCE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS
Residents reminded to stay cool, hydrated, and informed during extreme heat
High temperatures are expected over much of Wisconsin during the next several days, and the Department of Health Services is reminding residents to take steps to stay cool during this heat wave.
“Hot temperatures and humidity can be dangerous and even deadly,” said Jeanne Ayers, State Health Officer. “During this heat wave, it’s important to stay cool and hydrated, and check weather conditions before heading outside.”
Follow these tips to stay safe during extreme heat:
 Stay in air conditioning. When possible, stay in air conditioning on hot days. If you don’t have air conditioning, head to libraries, malls, and other public spaces to keep cool.
 Check on loved ones. Be sure to check on older friends and neighbors who live alone and don’t have air conditioning.
 Avoid going outside during the hottest part of the day. If you have to be outside, stick to the cooler morning and evening hours. Wear light, loose clothing and take frequent, air conditioned breaks.
 Beware of hot cars. Never leave a person or a pet in a parked car, even for a short time. On an 80 degree day, the temperature inside a car can reach 100 degrees in less than 10 minutes.
 Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water on hot days. Avoid alcohol and hot, heavy meals. Watch your local weather forecasts so you can plan outdoor activities safely. Pay attention to any extreme heat alerts.
Remember that anyone can get sick from the heat. In Wisconsin, people ages 15-34 are the most likely to report to the ER for getting sick from the heat. No matter your age or how healthy you are, it’s important to stay cool and hydrated, and check the forecast before heading outside.
If you start feeling overheated, weak, dizzy, nauseated, or have muscle cramps, you could be experiencing heat illness. Move to air conditioning, drink water, get under a fan, and put on cool washcloths. If your symptoms worsen or don’t improve, go to the emergency room.

01/29/2019

Please shop for necessities today before 6pm. Tonight at 6pm the State of Wisconsin will be under a Wind Chill advisor for the temperatures that will move into oure area over the next 2 days.
Wind Chill temperatures are predicted to be between -40 and -50 degrees in many areas.
Please stay safe and limit your time outside as much as possible.

They come from powerful thunderstorms.

Tornado’s can cause fatalities and devastate a neighborhood in seconds.

It’s a rotating funnel-shaped cloud with whirling winds that can reach up too 300mph.

Damage paths can be in excess of 1 mile wide and 50 mile long.

May appear transparent until dust and debris are picked up or a cloud forms in the funnel.

The average tornado moves Southwest to Northeast but may move in any direction.

A Tornado can occur at any time, but most often between 3pm and 9pm.

Tornado Watch
Means tornados are possible. Remain alert. Watch the sky and stay tuned to a weather radio, commercial radio, or television for information.

Tornado Warning

#1 Is a funnel present, it can become a tornado when it touches the ground.
#2 Hail, most often it is pea size, if there is hail present you should seek cover and/or shelter.
#3 Has the local weather service issued a tornado watch or warning.

* Be alert to changing weather conditions. Listen to a weather radio, TV news, a radio for the latest information.
* Look for approaching storms.

Oneida Environmental, Health and Safety Statement on Robertson Farm Manure Spill September 12, 2018
Oneida Nation staff, along with state and county staff responded to a manure spill report on September 10th, 2018, around 2:00 pm. The spill occurred on Robertson Farm, located on County Road E, where the pit quickly emptied approximately 300,000 gallons of liquid manure downhill into the Silver Creek. Oneida EHS staff responded to the report and were sampling and assessing the impacts to Silver Creek the same day. Nutrient and bacteria sampling of Silver Creek were collected from several locations. At that time, fish kills and visible manure in the stream were observed by staff. The report stated a faulty valve between a manure holding tank and a pit failed sometime during Sunday night or early Monday morning on the farm.
In an attempt to contain the manure flowing downstream, Silver Creek was pumped at HWY 172 and STH 54 Monday night and by Tuesday September 11, the stream had carried most of the manure downstream. Little evidence of the spill remained in the stream by Tuesday afternoon. Clean-up at the source of the spill is now taking place, including the flushing of the route to the stream and the return of manure-laden water back to the pit. Clean-up efforts are anticipated to be completed today.
Brown County and Oneida Nation health officials advise the public to not swim, play, walk or fish in streams in this area or in waters that look or smell like they contain manure. Pets should also keep away from these streams at this time.
The stream is expected to soon exhibit normal water quality conditions as it continues to flush. Staff does not anticipate any long-term effects. Follow-up monitoring will be conducted later this month to confirm.

In conjunction with Severe Weather Week:
WHAT IS A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM?
The National Weather Service considers a thunderstorm severe if it produces hail at least one inch in diameter, winds of 58 mph or stronger, or a tornado. Despite their small size...all thunderstorms are dangerous. Every thunderstorm produces lightning...which kills more people each year than tornadoes.

DID YOU KNOW...
• At any given moment, nearly 1,800 thunderstorms are in progress over the surface of the earth.
• On average, the United States gets 100,000 thunderstorms each year. Approximately 1,000 tornadoes develop from these storms.
• Large hail results in nearly $1 billion in damage to property and crops.
• Straight-line winds exceeding 100 mph are responsible for most thunderstorm damage.

HOW FAR AWAY IS THE THUNDERSTORM?
Count the number of seconds between a flash of lightning and the next clap of thunder. Divide this number by 5 to determine the distance to the lightning in miles.

Wisconsin’s Tornado & Severe Weather Awareness Week
April 9-13, 2018

(MADISON) – Governor Scott Walker has declared April 9-13, 2018, as Wisconsin’s Tornado & Severe Weather Awareness Week. Wisconsin Emergency Management, the National Weather Service (NWS) and the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association (WBA) have once again teamed up to sponsor the statewide tornado drills scheduled for Thursday, April 12th.

Schools, businesses, families, and individuals have two opportunities to test their emergency plans during statewide tornado drills April 12, 2018. The drills are part of the annual spring severe weather campaign to encourage everyone in Wisconsin to be ready for possible tornadoes and severe weather.

According to the NWS, Wisconsin averages 23 tornadoes annually. Last year, there were 23 tornado touchdowns in the state. While most were either EF0 or EF1, the state did record an EF3 on May 16, 2017. The tornado followed an 83 mile path across Polk, Barron, Rusk, and Price counties, killing one person and causing widespread damage. The state also experienced an outbreak of 10 tornadoes on June 14, 2017, across Shawano, Winnebago, Outagamie, Brown, and Waushara counties.

On April 12th, a mock tornado watch will be issued at 1:00 p.m. followed by a statewide mock tornado warning at 1:45 p.m. Many radio and TV stations across the state will issue the test tornado warnings. In addition, mock alerts will be issued on NOAA Weather Radios and many communities will sound their tornado sirens to test their emergency severe weather plans. Later, a mock tornado warning will be issued at 6:45 p.m. to give families and second shift workers a chance to practice their emergency plans.

The tornado drill will take place even if the sky is cloudy, dark or rainy. If actual severe storms are expected in the state on Thursday, April 12th, the tornado drills will be postponed until Friday, April 13th with the same times. If severe storms are possible Friday, the drills will be cancelled.

Any changes will be issued to local media as well as posted on the ReadyWisconsin website at http://readywisconsin.wi.gov. Updates will also be posted on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ReadyWisconsin), Twitter (www.twitter.com/ReadyWisconsin), and Instagram (www.instagram.com/ReadyWisconsin).
