Racine County Sheriff's deputies respond to over 50 winter weather related calls

RACINE COUNTY, Wisc. (CBS 85) --- Racine County Sheriff's deputies have responded to over 50 calls for crashes and motorists in need since 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30.

The Racine County Sheriff's Office announced the latest numbers in a tweet at 1:41 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 31.

Officials say the blowing and drifting snow created dangerous conditions for drivers, as well as deputies responding to assist.

RCSO said if you must travel, to be prepared with a winter survival kit including water, snacks, blankets, and a cell phone charger.

"Remember to leave early to allow for delays, drive slowly, and leave plenty of room for stopping," RCSO said in a news release. "If you are in a crash stay in your vehicle if it is safe. As we start to di gout please take breaks while clearing snow and check on your elderly neighbors."
