LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The ALS Association, a non-profit group devoted to fighting Lou Gehrig's disease, has cancelled a corporate breakfast event originally to be held at War Memorial Stadium Friday.

"With many of our speakers traveling in from out of town and the conditions worsening, we feel it is the responsible decision to not ask people to place themselves in any further danger," said NWA partner Kate Kressen in a statement. "We thank all of you for taking an interest in our very important cause and are unsure if a reschedule date is available.  We would love to set up meetings with all of you to further discuss our mission and the opportunities available for support."

Protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - As Arkansans heat their homes this week it is important to remember the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death. It is found in combustion fumes such as those produced by vehicles, small gasoline engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal, burning wood and gas ranges. If not ventilated correctly, CO from these sources can build up and poison people and animals.

The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and confusion. High levels of CO inhalation can cause loss of consciousness and death. Unless suspected, CO poisoning can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms mimic other illnesses. People who are sleeping or intoxicated can die from CO poisoning before ever experiencing symptoms.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management cautions residents as follows:
