Hugo hospital activates emergency blizzard protocol
HUGO, Colo. -- People in Lincoln County are being told to brace for the worst as a blizzard moves into the area Wednesday. Emergency workers expect the community to be without power for hours. The sheriff's office expects to make rescues up and down Interstate 70. "Visibility is going to be zero. Travel is going to be almost impossible. So we are wanting to make sure people are not stranded on our roadways," said Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Michael Yowell. "There are times our sheriff's [deputies] are not going to be able to get to them."
