Another Deadly Crash Into Water, In Winona

Written by

Two bodies have been recovered from a car that went into the Mississippi River at Winona...

Police in Winona got a call early Sunday morning, after a witness found a broken guard rail, a license plate, and tracks near the river.  The car was brought out of the water around noon, and the bodies of a man and woman were inside the vehicle.  This crash comes less than a week after a woman from Winona died when her car crashed into Swift Creek in La Crosse.

Health Department Advisory

Written by

The La Crosse County Health Department is issuing a special public health advisory
with regard to the dangers of severe cold outdoors, and prolonged exposure in poorly heated residences.

Community shelters will be open Sunday night through Wednesday morning for those needing a warm, safe place to stay, day or night.  Area residents can call 2-1-1 for more information.  

“With low temperatures and even moderate wind, outdoor exposure can become life threatening, even for those appropriately dressed for the outdoors,” said Brenda Lutz-Hanson, Health Educator. “Exposed areas such as the nose and ears can freeze within 30 seconds with a wind chill factor of negative 30 degrees.”

Residents are advised to plan ahead to limit travel and outdoor exposure during this period of time.

This extremely cold weather is also a danger to pets.  “We strongly urge residents to take their pets inside during these bitter cold temperatures” advocates Heather Hankins, Coulee Region Humane Society.  Hankins advises, “If you are unable to take them in, make sure the dog house has a flap to act as a wind break and retain body heat.  Check on them regularly, changing their water and keep their bedding dry. Dogs that normally live indoors should have limited time outside.”

Firefighters in La Crosse are getting special training this month...learning how to supply an antidote to a drug overdose victim.

The city fire department now has permission from Madison to let fire crews administer the drug Narcan, which can block the effects of narcotics like heroin.  La Crosse firefighters have responded to about 200 overdose calls in the last two years, but only paramedics have been allowed to give Narcan until now.
