Record Cold Temperatures Hit


Record cold temperatures reported in Chicago, other regions of Illinois. Repeated recordings of below-zero weather were reported this week throughout the State, with temperatures as low as -8° F. at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Thursday, February 19. Warming centers are operated for challenged people by municipalities, including the city of Chicago and by private sector entities such as the Salvation Army and the United Way.

Illinois residents are urged to monitor the health and safety of their neighbors, and to work with them should trouble appear. Conditions of extreme cold are also dangerous to the life and safety of companion animals.
