The Brown County Sheriff’s Office would like to caution the public to please refrain from being out and on the roadways.

Deputies report that roadway conditions are extremely bad. Extreme white out conditions, all US and state highways are ice covered, and many of the county roads are simply closed due to very high drifts.

In the past 24 hours, the Sheriff’s Office has taken 30+ reports of vehicles that have slid off the roads into ditches. No injuries have been reported and only minor damage.

If it can wait, it should.
