With dangerously cold weather just ahead in Wisconsin’s forecast and a severe propane shortage hitting the Midwest, Gov. Scott Walker has announced a state of emergency.

The supply shortage comes after unusually cold temperatures this winter and has resulted in delivery delays and reduced delivery amounts for propane customers.  Walker and his administration are asking residents to check on their friends and neighbors during the cold streak and to be aware of local warming shelters, if your heat goes out.

You can also call 1-866 - HEATWIS for information on where you can buy propane in your area.
