County Issues Hypothermia Alert Until 2 p.m. Tuesday

Montgomery County issued a Hypothermia Alert from 9 a.m. Monday until 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The county issues the alert when temperature and/or wind chill is forecasted to go below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. County Emergency Management and Homeland Security tells residents to expect wind chills below 32 degrees.

Warning signs of hypothermia include shivering, exhaustion, confusion and drowsiness, says the county. If residents notice any signs in someone, they should check their temperature. If it is below 95 degrees, it is an emergency and residents should immediately get medical attention. If someone is unconscious and does not feel like they have a pulse or is not breathing, the county says to call 911.
