YS village schools, the Antioch School, the Community Children’s Center and Friends Preschool will all be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 30, due to predicted extreme low temperatures.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning for today through Thursday afternoon. Isolated snow showers are expected before 10 a.m., with skies mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny and cold, with a high near 0 degrees. Wind chill values as low as -30 degrees are expected. The day will be breezy, with a west wind of 16 to 22 mph, with gusts as high as 39 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. Wednesday night will be mostly clear, with a low around -6 degrees, and wind chill values as low as -23 degrees and a west wind speed of 8 to 14 mph.
Please check with your school or organizing individuals for cancellations or delays of after-school activities.
Village police and Miami Township Fire Rescue will make rounds to check on people with known care issues. If you are concerned about someone’s welfare, please call the police so that they may check on them.
If you have no heat or are suffering from exposure-related issues, call 911. Please note that it is illegal for electric and gas providers to turn off services if the temperature falls below freezing. The Bryan Center is also open 24 hours a day for warmth, if necessary.
Frozen water pipes:
Please note that broken water pipes are a major issue during cold snaps. Protect your pipes from freezing by:
• insulating pipes that are exposed to outside temperatures;
• closing all foundation vents under the house;
• opening cabinets under sinks to let warm air circulate
Never leave a building unheated during freezing temperatures unless all water lines, drains and toilets have been properly drained. If a water line breaks, it is important to shut off the valve within your house or at the meter.
