Health Tip: Keeping Warm When There's an Ice Storm

Preserve heat when the power is out

(HealthDay News) -- An ice storm can weigh heavily on power lines, knocking out power for an extended period.

The SafeElectricity.org website suggests these tips to stay warm and safe:

  • Stay indoors. If you go outside, stay away from downed power lines.
  • Dress warmly in layers.
  • Close doors to any rooms that you aren't using.
  • If you're using an alternate heat source, follow safety guidelines and make sure the room is well-ventilated.
  • Pack towels around doorways to keep in heat, and cover windows at night.
