Protect Yourself Against Sub-Zero Temperatures

Sub zero temperatures and strong winds will pose a dangerous situation through Tuesday.

Wind chills could reach -30 degrees or lower.

Hoosiers should limit their exposure by staying indoors. If you must go outside, make it as brief as possible.

Wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing, and cover any exposed skin with a hat, scarf, and gloves.

The Indiana Board of Animal Health (BOAH) reminds pet owners to be especially sensitive to their animals’ limits when outside. Most pets cannot tolerate more than 20 minutes outside when the temperature drops below zero.

Be sure to provide a sheltered place for outdoor pets and make sure they have fresh water.

Use a heater for water or change the supply frequently.For full details, view this message on the web.
