90-Year Old Woman Dies From Exposure

On Mon­day, the snow stopped falling, but the wind picked up.

20 mile per hour wind gusts and –30 degree wind chills made travel extremely dan­ger­ous… and deadly.

A Wauseon woman has died because of the record cold.

Police say 90 year old Vir­ginia McFeters was found dead, face down in the snow on Mon­day morn­ing about 150 feet from her car, which was found stuck in her dri­ve­way.

She was taken by ambu­lance to the Ful­ton County Health Cen­ter, where she was pro­nounced dead

Offi­cials say the tem­per­a­tures are the low­est that have been seen in our area in more than a decade.

Actual tem­per­a­ture read­ings have been in the minus 10 to minus 15 degree range, with wind chills mak­ing it feel more like minus 30 to minus 40.

Tem­per­a­tures in the region today are expected to “warm up” to around zero.
