  • PennDOT crews working around the clock to keep roadways in good condition during snowfallPennDOT crews working around the clock to keep roadways in good condition during snowfall

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — PennDOT road crews are working 12 hour shifts to keep up with snowfall and freezing temperatures that are impacting highways and roads in the region. PennDOT spokesman Mike Crochunis says the goal is to get ready for the morning commute. “As the temperatures go down overnight and traffic drops off on some of the less traveled roads,” said Crochunis, “We will use more anti-skid material and road salt as needed, to get more traction out there.” Janyle Davis of Harrisburg says he has some concerns about his morning drive to work. “I’m not worried about my driving,” said Davis. “It is those people who drive to fast and are not considerate of others, that scares me.” Davis says he hopes the roads are in good shape when he wakes up on Wednesday morning. Crochunis says crews will put a lot of time on highways in the region and state roads that may accumulate more slush during the overnight snowfall, because they will have less traffic during that time. “We will plow in areas where needed,” said Crochunis, “But drivers need to be careful, and give themselves more space between cars in front of them.”

  • Narcan controversial?Narcan controversial?

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Statistics show 13 people die every day in Pennsylvania of an opioid overdose.  The state ranks as one of the 5 worst for opioid abuse in the nation. There is a drug called Naloxone, which is known by its brand name, Narcan, that is saving people from overdosing from opioids. The drug has saved tens of thousands of lives during this epidemic, but some abc27 viewers have emailed us to ask a harsh question, why should emergency responders keep saving the same people over and over again? The cost varies widely from $20 to $40 a dose. Emily Sullivan is a recovering opioid addict, and shares what the drug does to someone who has overdosed. “It kind of feels like you just want to crawl out of your skin. You feel dehydrated,” said Sullivan. That’s what it feels like to be “Narcanned.”  Sullivan has been through it multiple times. It’s sprayed in the nose, or injected into the thigh or abdomen. In the throws of her addiction, did she feel she was taking less of a risk because she knew Narcan could bring her back? “I’ve never heard that. I’ve never heard anyone say, ‘Well if I do too much they’ll be able to Narcan me.’ No one ever plans on doing too much. No one ever thinks that it’s going to be too much,” said Sullivan. Jack Carroll is the Executive Director of the Cumberland-Perry Drug and Alcohol Commission. He says we all have to remember addicts are human beings with a “disease,” not a “moral failing.” “It hurts me every time I hear that comment or read that comment in the newspaper or online,” said Carroll. “What I would say is we do it because it’s the right thing to do.” Carroll believes if you or a family member has chronic pain and takes a prescription opioid on an ongoing basis, there’s a risk you could overdose accidentally.  He advises keeping Naloxone in your medicine cabinet.  It is now available in pharmacies without a prescription. Our goal with these reports is to help. Navigating how to get into recovery can be complicated. There is a phone number you can call, 1-800-622-HELP (4357), it’s a hotline that’s staffed by trained professionals. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Snow creates slick driving conditions in Dauphin CountySnow creates slick driving conditions in Dauphin County

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Traffic was building up on side streets off of I-81 in Dauphin County from Monday’s snow. According to dispatchers, many car wrecks were reported along Crooked Hill Road in Susquehanna Township. There were not many details other than the fact that officials have been trying to get a salt truck on that road, and it did drive by around 6 PM. Traffic was backed up and road crews recommend avoiding the area until it can get clear. Otherwise, I-81 is looking good. Drivers are going at a slow and steady pace. State Police say they haven’t had any major issues on the highway. Although the roads are still slick, they say be careful if you are driving tonight. At about 6 PM about an inch and a half of light snow has fallen, and is sticking to roads. Drive safely, keep your headlights on, and use caution on area roads.

  • Groundbreaking for new training facility at Fort Indiantown Gap National Guard Training CenterGroundbreaking for new training facility at Fort Indiantown Gap National Guard Training Center

    ANNVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) – The midstate is getting the first look at a new training center, which is expected to completed at the Fort Indiantown Gap National Guard Training Center. Some of the most decorated army personnel in Pennsylvania used golden shovels to move the ceremonial first pieces of dirt for the new training center. It will replace the old center which was built during World War Two and will be nearly three times its size. The project is expected to cost more than $11 million and will be 63,000 square feet large. Lieutenant Colonel Lane Marshall, the garrison commander says the building will house high-tech simulators that will show military members how to operate vehicles that are used during combat. “We have over 135,000 troops that train here annually. It’s critical that they have access to training aids and simulators to augment their training. It both enhances their ability to train when they’re actually out on the actual equipment,” said Lt. Col. Marshall. The building will also have energy saving features like a geothermal HVAC system. Construction is expected to wrap up in December of 2019.

    WRIGHTSVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Emergency management officials in York County are keeping a close eye on the Susquehanna River. Ice jams have caused the river to overflow onto roadways and embankments. Some area municipalities have had to close off private and non-major roadways. “It can be – for awareness, but not to dramatize it – it can be a matter of minutes from when you see water coming up until it comes onto the roadway. It can happen very quickly,” public information officer Mark Walters said. Fire and police departments are updating the county on river conditions multiple times a day. Officials say the warm temperatures are more of a concern than snowfall. The agency will continue to monitor the river. They encourage everyone to stay off the ice.

  • Republican lawmakers introduce bills to fight overregulationRepublican lawmakers introduce bills to fight overregulation

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Republican members of the House announced five pieces of legislation on Tuesday, designed at fighting against what they call overregulation in the state. The House State Government Committee introduced their Regulatory Overreach Report, a compilation of findings from a series of public hearings with employees, organizations and experts on state regulatory policy. The bills include House Bill 1792, which would give the General Assembly the ability to initiate the repeal of any state regulation in effect by concurrent resolution. House Bill 1237 would require the General Assembly to vote on a concurrent resolution to approve an economically significant regulation in order for that regulation to go into effect. Rep. Kristin Phillips-Hill introduced House Bill 209, which would establish the Independent Office of Repealer. That office would review existing regulations, receive and process recommendations, and make recommendations to the General Assembly, the governor, and executive agencies for repeal. “If this office does its job correctly, that means we will get rid of those regulations that are on the books that are duplicative, burdensome, and slowing down business in the commonwealth,” Phillips-Hill said. “And the rest of the legislation in this package will be put in place to ensure that, going forward, we don’t make those same mistakes again.” If House Bill 209 passes, the Independent Office of Repealer would be established for just five years.

  • Pennsylvania says flu cases have increased ‘sharply’Pennsylvania says flu cases have increased ‘sharply’

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Department of Health says information from hospital emergency rooms medical providers indicate that flu activity has increased sharply from past weeks. More than 17,000 people in the state have been sickened by flu since the beginning of October. Fourteen flu-associated deaths were reported during the second week of the year, bringing the total to 32. Twelve deaths were reported in the first week of 2018. York County has 998 confirmed flu cases so far this year, the second highest of all Pennsylvania counties. Lancaster County has 659 cases, Dauphin County has 430, and Cumberland County has 398. Adams County has 246 cases, Franklin County has 228, and Lebanon County has 185. The Health Department said the numbers represent only those cases that have had a positive laboratory test for flu. It said the numbers represent only a fraction of flu illnesses since most people do not go to a doctor or are not tested.

  • Something Good: Horse HavenSomething Good: Horse Haven

    Nestled in Perry County is a safe haven for horses. “With most of the horses that are here, it’s a true neglect situation where they did not have access to enough food and water to sustain them,” said Amy Kaunas, executive director of Humane Society of Harrisburg Area. Now, 10 equestrian beauties have pastures, barns, food, water and plenty of love. “The most-ready to be adopted and we’ll put them through some training. We’ll get them under saddle and we’ll get them as close as we can to rideable,” Kaunas said. The nonprofit has 20 other horses under its care. “They are spread out throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland. We have negotiated either private contracts or foster agreements with different individuals or professional boarding facilities,” Kaunas said. Why are there so many abandoned or seized horses? Caring for them is not cheap; upkeep is expensive. “Folks that get a horse turn them out to pasture. During in the spring and summer, they’re eating grass. They get to winter, hay is $4 or $5 a bail, grain $20 or $30 dollars a bag. They’re going through it very quickly and they can’t keep up with it,” Kaunas said. “That’s where we start to see problems.” “We’ve had many cases where all we’re able to do is get an emergency vet and euthanize the animal on site” Her message: if you see something, say something, even if you are not a horse expert. “That’s okay. You don’t have to know. But if you see something, you are not quite sure, it hurts nothing to call us,” she said. HSHA could use some help with the horses, from financial to fostering, adopting, and supporting those on the farm. A wish list is in the image below. — Online: Humane Society of Harrisburg Area
