Hard Freeze Warning

Statement as of 12:31 PM CST on January 16, 2018

Expires 10:00 AM EST on January 18, 2018


... Hard freeze warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to
9 am CST Thursday...

* temperature... dropping to the mid teens to around 20 degrees.

* Impacts... sub-freezing temperatures could result in
hypothermia and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and
sensitive vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of
freezing and possibly bursting.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A hard freeze warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize Carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.
