Wind Chill Warning Continues in the Twin Tiers


Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The National Weather Service has extended the Wind Chill Warning through this morning.  The warning was due to expire last evening, but temperatures continued to hover in the single digits, combined with wind, to make for dangerous conditions.

An official temperature reading of -8 at the Greater Binghamton Airport yesterday broke the previous daily record for January 7 of -1 set in 1996.

The Firefighters Association of New York is offering tips for staying warm and safe during the cold spell.

Officials say never leave a portable space heater in a room unattended and limit the amount of time they are used. Unplug units when not in use and keep a window ajar or the door to the room open when the heater is in use.

Make sure fireplace flues are open before using and never leave a fire unattended.

Test home smoke alarms and Make sure batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are fresh.

The American Red Cross says home fire risk increases during cold weather and it is prepared to assist in the event of fire.
