posted on 2/24/19

February 24, 2019 the Worth County Sheriff’s Office took an abundance of calls of stranded motorists threw out Worth County, due to the winter storm that has blanketed the area with snow, ice and high winds over the last 24 hours. With the roads being impassible by vehicle and plows unable to make headway a different means of transportation was being utilized to bring the motorist to safety. Snowmobiles and UTV with tracks were called upon to maneuver down the roads and rescue travelers who had for many spent the night in their vehicles. It is still strongly advised to not be out through the rest of tonight. Plows have been pulled off state and local roadways, law enforcement is unable to get to people. The Worth County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all of the members of the Worth County Fence Stretchers and the members of the volunteer fire departments threw out the county for braving the elements to respond to any and all of these calls to help the stranded, injured, and any other reason that the residents of Worth County along with those traveling threw could be brought to safety.
