Extreme Cold Warning issued for Peace River

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Moments ago, Environment Canada issued a Extreme Cold Warning statement.

“Cold Arctic air has settled over the BC Peace River region. The cold temperatures in combination with northerly winds will generate wind chills near minus 40. With no warming trend in sight, these wind chills are expected to persist at least into the end of the week.”

Watch for cold related symptoms and complaints which include:

  • Respiratory: shortness of breath, wheezing and cough
    Cardiovascular: chest pain and arrhythmias
    Circulation: colour change of finger and toes, pain, numbness and tickling sensation in extremities
    Muscle: pain, stiffness, swelling, restricted movement, weakness
    Skin: itching, pale

If you experience these symptoms when exposed to the cold, move indoors and begin warming. Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
