REMOTE RESCUE DEVICE
JACKSON — An anonymous Wyoming resident has given more than $100,000 to Teton County Search and Rescue to help purchase a system to help find people lost or injured in remote areas with no cellphone service. The device, Lifeseeker, attaches to a helicopter or plane and allows rescuers to locate people where there is no cell signal as long as their cellphone is turned on, the Jackson Hole News and Guide reported last week.

CONCORD, N.H. — Falling temperatures replaced the weekend’s falling snow Monday as bitter cold and gusty winds swept across the eastern United States. The National Weather Service had forecast that temperatures would be more than 20 degrees below normal across the Northeast, with wind gusts up to 30 mph and wind chills approaching minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 40 degrees Celsius) in northern New York and Vermont. Another storm system is already developing over the Rockies that could blanket the same region with more snow by the end of the week. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for parts of Colorado for Monday night, and winter storm warnings for southeast Wyoming, western Nebraska and Utah. By Holly Ramer.
