Even though the snow has stopped falling, the dangerously cold temperatures still pose a major hazard.

With temperatures hovering around the zero degree mark, officials want everyone to take the cold weather seriously. Frostbite and hypothermia can happen quickly, so look after your fellow neighbor.

Police say this is especially the case with the elderly, who often become the first victims of dangerously low temperatures.

Sgt. Cullum says officers have made a few welfare checks for people who might be stuck in the cold.
