...POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING SITUATION WITH EXTREME COLD THIS
WEEKEND...

* TEMPERATURES THIS WEEKEND WILL FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS AND
  BELOW ZERO ACROSS ALL OF EASTERN NEW YORK AND WESTERN NEW
  ENGLAND. VALLEY LOCATIONS WILL AVERAGE BETWEEN 5 AND 10 DEGREES
  FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES WHILE HIGHER TERRAIN WILL REMAIN AT OR
  BELOW ZERO. OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL DROP BELOW ZERO.

* NORTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH WILL RESULT IN WIND CHILL VALUES
  BETWEEN 20 AND 45 DEGREES BELOW ZERO...WITH THE COLDEST VALUES
  ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN. 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 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

* 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
