Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Dwight Howard scored 27 points, including three crucial free throws in the
closing seconds, and James Harden scored 10 of his 22 points in the decisive
third quarter to help the Houston Rockets hold off the short-handed, scrappy
Milwaukee Bucks and win their fifth straight, 101-95 on Saturday night.

Jeremy Lin added 18 as the Rockets tied their longest winning streak of the
season, a mark set in late November.

Brandon Knight scored 23 points for the Bucks and Khris Middleton had 20,
including three free throws after being fouled behind the arc with 46.6 seconds
remaining as Milwaukee came back to trail 98-95. Howard made three of four free
throws for Houston's final points and seal the win.

WISCONSIN - Severe weather can strike at any time in north central Wisconsin. Emergency Management services encourage people to have a NOAA Weather Radio to be prepared during a storm.

Weather radios cost about $30. They are a 24 hour source of any weather warnings and information.

Emergency Management says they're very useful, especially with unpredictable Wisconsin weather.

"A NOAA Weather Radio is an all hazards weather radio," said Oneida County Emergency Management Program Assistant Dawn Robinson. "We recommend all households should have them, for lots of different reasons. Of course they're going to alert you to weather related events. They can also be alerted for other events, such as a missing child."

Emergency Management also wants people to know the radios are very easy to program and use.
