here are some additional tip for cold weather.

Winter storms create a higher risk of car accidents, hypothermia, frostbite, carbon monoxide poisoning, and heart attacks from overexertion. Winter storms and blizzards can bring extreme cold, freezing rain, snow, ice, and high winds. A winter storm can:

Last a few hours or several days;

Knock out heat, power, and communication services; and

Place older adults, young children, and sick individuals at greater risk.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A WINTER STORM WARNING, FIND SHELTER RIGHT AWAY

Stay off roads.

Stay indoors and dress warmly.

Prepare for power outages.

Use generators outside only and away from windows.

Listen for emergency information and alerts.

Look for signs of hypothermia and frostbite.

Check on neighbors.

My wife and I have older neighbors and we call them from time to time in the winter to make sure they are okay.  When we go to the store, we ask if they need anything so they can stay home during the winter storms. It is important to help each other. You never know when you will need help too.
