We received a call about a piece of "wood" in the roadway that needed to be removed. Upon arrival to the location, this is what was found. It is not what I expecting, that's for sure. Luckily some passerby stopped and removed it from the road so it wouldn't get damaged. Currently it is at the police department waiting to be claimed. How many rings are there to define it's age? 563-382-3667

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Winneshiek County in effect until 7 pm this evening:

* TEMPERATURE...Late afternoon temperatures today of 90 to 95 are expected, with heat indices of 100 to 110.

* Impacts...Heat-related illnesses may occur with prolonged
exposure to the heat. The elderly, children, and pets are
especially at risk for heat illnesses.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions...if you work or spend time outside. When possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work...the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned room...stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
