High winds challenging motorists in Upper Peninsula


Chippewa County is experiencing several areas with whiteout conditions. Driving in those areas are very dangerous at this point.

Local Law Enforcement have responded to multiple complaints of vehicles crashes including one multi-vehicle crash on M-28 near Soo Line. At this time Officers are still on scene of the M-28 crash.

The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office is asking that you only travel if necessary until the winds calm down. If you must drive make sure you have headlights on, you wear your seat belt and SLOW DOWN.

Thank you and BE SAFE!
