Minnesota- The DNR is reminding boaters to be extra cautious as cold weather approaches. They say fatalities increase as the water gets cooler. Officials say even strong swimmers can be in trouble as cold water is taxing. Additionally, as fewer people are out on lakes, a cry for help may go unanswered. The DNR says foam life jackets are the best option for cold water and to check for changing weather before heading out.
