SYOSSET - The snow may have tapered off, but bitter-cold temperatures are expected this weekend, leaving people who are homeless especially vulnerable.
As News 12 Long Island reported last week, a woman from Rocky Point was found dead in the snow. Officials say she was homeless and sleeping outside behind a shopping center.
"It's dangerous and it doesn't take much for them to get sick or freeze to death," says Connie Lassandro, director of Nassau Homeless Services.
Lassandro says her agency will find a bed for anyone who needs it. There is space available for about 50 people.
As temperatures are expected to drop into the teens tonight, people who have to work outdoors are urged to bundle up and wear layers.
