Even With Extreme Cold, Wisconsin Emergency Management Says, "So Far, So Good"

-The deep freeze that's descended on much of the United States has not caused any serious emergencies yet in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Emergency Management spokesman Tod Pritchard said Monday that there have been reports of the usual items expected with this extreme cold including water main breaks, frozen pipes in homes and vehicles not starting or breaking down. He also says there were minor power outages in some areas, but power was quickly restored and no one had to be relocated.

Pritchard says of the cold, "So far, so good."

Pritchard says one of the major concerns is of people suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of using charcoal or gas heaters inside to warm their homes.

The Ready Wisconsin emergency preparedness website at ready.wi.gov also lists heating shelters around the state open to get people out of the dangerous cold.
