According to the Norwalk Fire Department Office of Emergency Management, cold air and wind may result in wind chills as low as -15ºF beginning this evening. In addition to tonight and tomorrow’s winter storm, bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills, are expected tonight through Saturday. 

The Norwalk Fire Department, Office of Emergency Management urges residents to take precautions to keep safe during this especially frigid weather. Cold weather often results in power outages, frozen pipes, fires and other life-threatening events when people use unsafe alternative heat sources or don't take precautions against the cold.

Residents that need warming assistance can go to the Main and South Norwalk libraries, which are the main warming centers in Norwalk. United Way/ Infoline 2-1-1 can be called for emergency shelters and resources in Norwalk and across the region.

The Office of Emergency Management offers several tips to keep safe during cold weather.
