During the storm, people should stay off the roads if at all possible. Residents should be extra cautious if they must drive during these potentially hazardous conditions and leave extra time for their travels during the storm.
People should also limit their time outside and if they do need to go out they should wear layers of warm clothing and keep an eye out for signs of frostbite and hypothermia. People also should reduce the risk of a heart attack by avoiding overexertion when shoveling snow and walking in the snow.
If a warming center is needed, the Margenot Atrium of the Public Safety Complex at 11 Bruce Place will be open for people to come in and charge small electronic devices.
