Hoosiers Encouraged To Prepare For Frigid Temperatures During Winter Weather Preparedness Week
Friday, November 8, 2019

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is encouraging residents across the Hoosier State to use Winter Weather Preparedness Week, which takes place from November 10th through the 16th, as an opportunity to properly prepare for upcoming winter weather.

During winter, Hoosiers should always monitor local radio, TV stations and social media for weather updates. It is also important to understand the differences between watches, warnings and advisories.

The National Weather Service reports 36 Americans died due to cold weather in 2018. Prolonged exposure to bitterly cold temperatures increases the chances of cold weather illnesses like frostbite and hypothermia.
