Police say if you don't have to drive, stay home


Multiple sheriff's department officials say driving conditions have deteriorated quickly. They recommend staying home if you don't have to drive.

A patrol lieutenant with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department says roads are very slick in some spots and blowing snow has limited visibility in parts of the county.

He told Newsline 9 that there have been numerous slide-offs and minor crashes Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Marathon County Highway Department crews have started salting roads that need it.

In Lincoln County, dispatch officials say visibility can go from limited to zero in seconds due to high wind gusts and falling snow.

Authorities there also recommend staying off the roads if you can.
