...LIFE THREATENING EXTREME COLD CONTINUES THROUGH THIS MORNING...

* TEMPERATURES THIS MORNING HAVE FALLEN TO BETWEEN 5 AND 30
  DEGREES BELOW ZERO...WITH THE COLDEST READINGS ACROSS THE HIGH
  TERRAIN OF THE SOUTHERN ADIRONDACKS.

* NORTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 15 MPH AND GUSTS UP TO 25 MPH WILL
  RESULT IN WIND CHILL VALUES BETWEEN 25 AND 60 DEGREES BELOW ZERO
  THIS MORNING...WITH THE COLDEST VALUES ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN
  OF THE SOUTHERN ADIRONDACKS AND SOUTHERN GREEN MOUNTAINS. THESE
  VALUES WILL RESULT IN FROSTBITE TO OCCUR IN 10 MINUTES OR LESS
  ON EXPOSED SKIN. RESIDENTS ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO TAKE PROPER
  PRECAUTIONS WITH LIMITING EXPOSED SKIN. IF AT ALL
  POSSIBLE...REMAIN INDOORS THIS MORNING.

* IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY...BE SURE TO COVER EXPOSED PIPES
  TO REDUCE THE THREAT OF FROZEN PIPES OR PIPE BURSTS.

* ENSURE YOUR FURNACES ARE IN WORKING ORDER. FOLLOW MANUFACTURES
  INSTRUCTIONS OR UTILIZE A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN TO ENSURE PROPER
  AND SAFE OPERATION OF YOUR FURNACE.

* NEVER VENTURE OUTDOORS WITHOUT WEARING GLOVES...A HAT AND
  SEVERAL LAYERS OF CLOTHING.

* RUN WATER AT A TRICKLE AND KEEP CABINET DOORS OPEN TO PREVENT
  PIPES FROM FREEZING.

* NEVER USE A STOVE OR OVEN TO HEAT YOUR HOME OR USE AN OPEN FLAME
  TO MELT FROZEN PIPES. MANY HOUSE FIRES RESULT FROM THESE
  PRACTICES.

* NEVER USE A GENERATOR NEAR OR INSIDE YOUR HOME. CARBON MONOXIDE
  POISONING IS DEADLY.  CHECK OR INSTALL CARBON MONOXIDE
  DETECTORS.

* CHECK TIRE PRESSURE AND YOUR CAR BATTERY. BE SURE YOUR CAR HAS
  A WINTER SAFETY KIT THAT INCLUDES A BLANKET...WARM CLOTHES AND
  GLOVES IN CASE YOUR CAR BREAKS DOWN OR BECOMES STRANDED.

* TAKE EXTRA STEPS TO KEEP YOUR PETS WARM AND KNOW THEIR LIMITS TO
  COLD.
