Snow, cold causing issues across the area

A jackknifed semi-truck in Sister Bay was among the many incidents occurring in the area due to the poor winter conditions. According to Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski, six different snow-related calls were made to its dispatch center in a 12-hour span Monday, which does not account for random officer and deputy assists of motorists stuck in the road. In Sister Bay, a semi-truck driver was uninjured when his trailer jackknifed driving northbound on Highway 42 and tried to make a right turn onto Highway 57. Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says they have not had too many other EMS calls related to Winter Storm Beth, but still encourages people to travel safely.


Following the snow system is extreme cold that could bring wind chills as low as -50 to the area. Hecht encourages people to take advantage of the comparatively warmer weather to check your propane tank levels and clear vents for your furnace, fireplace, and dryer.
