Frostbite a danger as temperatures drop

KTRS, St. Louis, MO - The wind is howling this morning and will be much of the day, forcing temperatures down to dangerously low levels. The wind chill will make the air temp feel like 20 to 30 degrees below zero, and the blowing and drifting snow will test the patience of drivers and road crews alike.

Officials are again asking that if you don't have to be on the roads, to stay home. St. Louis City and County government offices are closed as are St. Charles. If you must travel, be prepared for the unexpected, for instance a breakdown or an accident that closes the roadway. Carry extra clothing, a warm blanket, some food and water and perhaps a thermos with a hot beverage, and make certain your cell phone is fully charged.

Frostbite is a real consequence of not being prepared as in today's conditions, frostbite could occur within 30 minutes. Keep your mouth and nose covered, exposing as little skin as possible. And simply limit your time outdoors.

   A cement plant worker is recovering at a local hospital after falling eight feet into a gravel bin Thursday. Emergency workers were called to the Valley Material Company cement plant in Valley Park about 3:30 p.m.  

  Valley Park Assistant Fire Chief Rolland Piotraschke says rescuers used several ladder trucks to reach and retrieve the man who was buried waist deep in gravel when they found him.  Piotraschke says the rescue was made more difficult because the worker was unconscious when he was removed from the bin.  

   Lois Hewkin, whose family owns Valley Park Welding says the man is a welder who was fixing a hole in the gravel hopper when he slipped and fell.  She describes him as a hard worker who's been with the company for about 18 years.

   Hewkin says the man is expected to make a full recovery.
