Emergency managers worked around the clock to deal with the winter storm. The Emergency Operations Center was activated Thursday night at 6 o' clock and has kept constant contact the National Weather Service, according to spokeswoman Lori Getter. She calls it "fortunate" that the state did not receive more ice as was anticipated.
While Wisconsin gets hit with snow, the southern part especially, meteorologists predict another storm system brewing in the west. It's expected to hit western and northwest Wisconsin, Saturday and Sunday.
On top of that, Getter says it's a difficult time of year for people to have to deal with severe weather because of holiday travel plans. She advises people to pay attention to the weather and pay attention to the roads.
Getter says during severe weather conditions people should avoid driving, unless absolutely necessary.
