Thunder Bay's Alzheimer's Society calls the death of a 66 year old Toronto woman tragic. The elderly woman suffered from Alzheimer's and left her home shortly after 2 am in minus twenty degree temperatures. Executive Director Alison Denton says the society has a wandering registry that is connected to the RCMP. The registry helps track where the missing person might have travelled to. Denton wants local residents if they see a distressed senior to lend them a helping hand.
It's been a busy day for Thunder Bay police. They've been taking care of numerous traffic accidents which have been caused due to the snowfall. According to police since 9 this morning there have been almost 20 accidents reported to them. There are no serious injuries to report.
