Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker declares a state of emergency.

His state is preparing for a possible blizzard, and he isn’t taking any chances.

This emergency operations center is ready to go as the storm looms over the area.

Parts of Wisconsin are already under a blizzard warning.

The state could see anywhere from a foot to 16-inches of snow.

Schools will be closed Wednesday in West Bend, Wisconsin.

Police are telling people unless they absolutely have to be on the roads, stay at home.

Many businesses are hoping to run as usual.

Officials say the heavy snow will likely cause road closures in rural areas, and winds will also cause scattered power outages.
