Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Lake Hallie (WQOW)- From Wisconsin hearts to Lynn Haven, Florida’s hands, one local man is filling a trailer up with supplies for those devastated by Hurricane Michael.

Kurt Reith from Lake Hallie is making a trip to Florida to pick up his sister-in-law Karen, but decided to bring a trailer full of supplies with him on his journey to help those who aren’t leaving.

Reith said so far people have donated bottled water, tarps, groceries and bleach.

He said when he told Karen he made the arrangements to bring her back, she was ecstatic and had some spunk back in her voice.

“There’s no electricity down there, and you can’t flush your toilet and there’s no running water and they’re saying a month to two months before they get electricity,” Reith said. “She’s more than grateful to come up. She said she swears she’d never come up in 32 years and she’s going to come up.”

Reith said they’ve been in contact with city officials in Lynn Haven and they are in need of hygiene products, diapers and pet food to name a few .

If you’re interested in helping out before he leaves Thursday morning you can send him an email at candk01@yahoo.com.

Weather Outlook: Still slippery tonight, sunshine returns tomorrow

Drizzle picked back up this afternoon, and much like yesterday froze to untreated surfaces. The good news is the salt and sand put down yesterday is still working, and many municipalities were out again putting down more today. Still, any small stretch of even main roads where salt and/or sand have washed away from cars driving over it could quickly develop slippery spots from this very thin layer of ice
