Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:
Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
White River – Dubreuilville
A period of very cold wind chills is expected.
Extreme wind chill values near or below minus 40 are expected tonight and early Sunday morning.
Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.
Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.
Check on older family, friends and neighbours.
If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
