IT’s cold out there! Very Cold!

As of 7:45 Sun­day evening, Williams County was placed under a Level 3 snow emer­gency. That means only essen­tial per­son­nel should be on the road­ways.

State and local offi­cials on Sun­day warned that the severe win­ter weather and extreme cold could poten­tially be deadly as wind chills as low as –40 degrees were expected overnight.

Wind gusts of up to 30 mph, caused blow­ing and drift­ing snow mak­ing many roads impas­si­ble at times.

Health and safety offi­cials warn that tem­per­a­tures like we have been expe­ri­enc­ing can cause frost­bite to occur in just min­utes on exposed flesh.
