A polar vortex has hit our area bringing extremely cold temperatures. Staying out in the cold too long can cause serious health problems like hypothermia and frostbite.
Please visit the CDC's website to learn about hypothermia and frostbite including who is most at risk, signs and symptoms, and what to do if someone develops hypothermia or frostbite.
The Bigelow Center for Senior Activities will be open as a warming center today, 1/30/2019, from 9am - 5pm for those who need a place to warm up.
