MILWAUKEE (AP) - Hundreds of vehicles were stranded or ended up in crashes as a winter storm made travel dangerous in eastern Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports there were more than 340 stranded vehicles and crashes in Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ozaukee and Washington counties after heavy snowfall that started Tuesday and continued into Wednesday.
The storm dumped 14 inches in Sheboygan County, where sheriff's Lt. Mark Rupnik says they've had at least 100 calls for stranded vehicles, vehicles in ditches or accidents. He says the main highways were drivable as of Wednesday afternoon but expected the secondary roads to be a problem for the next day.
Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday. There were also power outages in the Milwaukee area.
