A cold wave a sweeping across central and eastern USA for the last three days and meteorologists warned there was little relief in sight. Schools and educational institutions remained closed on Thursday. Bone chilling Arctic winds blow across Canada and further hit the U.S. Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, with many parts around minus 10 Fahrenheit (minus 23 Celsius), the National Weather Service said.
National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Broyles said “While it looks like the high pressure responsible for the cold will last another day or two and then move to the east, another shot of cold air will be coming into the north-central states toward the weekend.”
Public have been advised to keep their pets indoors. Frostbite can take place with just 15 minutes of exposure to the frigid air. Driving is particularly treacherous in places which are facing blowing snow and icy roadways. Public have been advised to avoid driving in such conditions.
