The Niagara Region has also advised that an Extreme Cold Weather Alert will go into effect for Niagara today (Jan. 29) at 5 p.m., as temperatures are expected to drop below -15 C.

They are reminding the public to check in on neighbours who may be at risk during extreme cold weather, and stay warm and healthy with these tips:

• Cover exposed skin (exposed skin can become frostbitten in 30 seconds) • Wear a hat (up to 40 per cent of body heat loss can occur through the head) • Canadian Paediatric Society recommends keeping children indoors if the temperature falls below –25 Celsius, or if the wind chill is –28 Celsius or greater • Use caution when shovelling snow especially for those that have heart, respiratory (breathing) problems or other medical conditions. Snow shovelling strenuous and can cause an onset of heart or respiratory problems. • Always be alert for signs of frostbite and hypothermia
