Don't take any chances today or friday--its going to be fatally cold. At least 7 people have died so far this season, including 4 in Chicago. If you can delay or avoid travel plans through the Midwest, you should do so.

If you must go out in this weather, take it seriously. Have the following in your car:

  • Cell phone with charger
  • Shovel & scrapers
  • Flashlight
  • Extra Hats, coats, mittens, blankets
  • Battery powered radio
  • Snack food and water
  • Road salt or sand
  • First aid kit

Most importantly: Stay tuned to emergency broadcasts and know the weather situation for yourself!

Stay safe, and keep an eye out for those who may need your help.

"...an invaluable resource" for extreme weather

by Rory Groves        January 4, 2010  |  9:59 am  |  Category: Testimonials

"I concur with these testimonials. this year has been the exception as opposed to the norm with respect to weather in Kentucky. When weather events affecting public welfare have occurred they have been on the extreme side whether flooding in August and September or just the past week an EF 2 tornado in Casey County. Weather Defender has been an invaluable resource in bringing all aspects of the dynamic weather picture together to present an ongoing assessment of potentially dangerous weather situations."
