The National Weather Service urges everyone during dangerously cold weather to remember the four Ps: People, pets, plants and pipes!

Be sure to check on vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and children. Make sure outdoor pets have a warm shelter or bring them inside. Bring your plants inside or cover the ones that must remain outside. Lastly, cover any outdoor exposed pipes and drip your indoor faucets.
