Frostbite Warning


UNDATED (WKZO) - Arctic temperatures are expected to hover around southern Michigan for most of the week, and the National Weather Service says overnight wind chill readings in some areas were 20 degrees below zero or greater. 

 If you must go out, wear layered loose-fitting clothing, gloves and hats in these temperatures.

Borgess E.R. Doctor David Rossi says your hands and feet will tell you when its time to go in they will become painful and will sting. .

He says ignoring those warnings is how alcoholics, the elderly and drug abusers wind up losing fingers, and sometimes their lives.

A number of schools were closed yesterday and some began announcing last night that they would be closed again this morning, and officials are advising people not to be out in the cold unless necessary. 

 A 20-car chain reaction collision has killed a prominent Muskegon Businessman.  58-year-old Bob Cutler reportedly hit another car in a near white-out on U.S.-31 at about 10 yesterday morning and then his car was hit by a semi.  He was alive when they cut him out but died later at the hospital.   8 others were injured, one critically.

Cutler was the owner of Muskegon Brake and Tire and the former President of the Muskegon Chamber of Commerce.  He leaves behind a wife, three children and 5 grandchildren.
