Indy takes steps to keep you safe during cold snap

Posted at 7:15 PM, Jan 29, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS — Wednesday could be a record cold temperature day in Indianapolis.

Temperatures will be low enough for the City of Indianapolis to open an emergency shelter at Municipal Gardens near West 16th. Street and Lafayette Road.

Mayor Joe Hogsett says the shelter will be open from 10am Wednesday to 9pm Thursday and will provide bedding and water for people who lose power or have other emergencies.

Transportation to the shelter can be arranged by calling 211.

The Wayne Township Fire Department warns against going outside without a heavy coat, hat and gloves.

Body heat can be lost quickly when the temperature is around zero.

And keep an eye on children and the elderly.

The good news is that the high temperature Friday should be above freezing.
