RUSK COUNTY -- Sheriff Jeff Wallace is asking citizens in Rusk County to not travel within the county (unless it is an emergency) until the emergency departments, snow and power crews, have a chance to clear the roads of snow, trees and power lines.

"Please be courteous to the workers as they are working as fast as the can while working safely," Sheriff Wallace said in a press release Thursday morning.

"The power is out throughout the whole county at this time, so please be patient."

Several other areas in Northwest Wisconsin are also experiencing power outage to go along with the slippery and dangerous roads this morning.
