Residents in the Michigan area have to get ready for another flash of Artic cold. The national weather service is predicting very cold temperatures and wind chills below zero, quite possibly until Wednesday. Ron Leix, public information officer for the Michigan state police emergency management and homeland security divisions, is telling residents to wear protective gear when they are outside. Also beware of the signs of hypothermia, which include shivering, memory loss, drowsiness and exhaustion. Leix is telling residents to weather-proof their doors and windows, and also check their heating units. Taking these precautions will help protect family and friends in these terribly low temperatures.
