Wind Chill and Freeze Warnings across the U.S.


Jan 7, 2010: The Upper Midwest is experiencing the brunt of the cold,
with with extreme winds and blowing snow

Don't take any chances today or friday--its going to be fatally cold. At least 7 people have died so far this season, including 4 in Chicago. If you can delay or avoid travel plans through the Midwest, you should do so.

If you must go out in this weather, take it seriously. Have the following in your car:

  • Cell phone with charger
  • Shovel & scrapers
  • Flashlight
  • Extra Hats, coats, mittens, blankets
  • Battery powered radio
  • Snack food and water
  • Road salt or sand
  • First aid kit

Most importantly: Stay tuned to emergency broadcasts and know the weather situation for yourself!

Stay safe, and keep an eye out for those who may need your help.
