Thin ice a problem with changing weather

Des Moines, Iowa – Ice fishing is not recommended over about the southern half of Iowa and caution is advised across the entire state.  D-N-R conservation officer Michael Miller says people may get fooled by a couple of cold days and think the ice is safe.

Temperatures will be on the rise once again late this week into the weekend and Miller says that will also add to the problem.

Miller says the water remains cold and the is a bigger concern when someone falls through the ice than drowning as it does not take long for hypothermia to set in and be deadly.
