Decorah Police: Avoid travel on local roads

Posted: Updated:

People living in Decorah are being asked by the Police Department to do two things Thursday night: Do not travel on local roads - many are blocked by downed power lines and trees. Also, do not call the law enforcement center asking about the power outage.

Emergency officials are currently extremely "busy with other necessary tasks."

Decorah was hit by a severe storm that passed through the area, as forecasted by KWWL.  Power was knocked out to a good portion of the area.  Utility departments, fire departments, emergency management and others are working to clear the roads and make the area safe.
