WOODBURY - Long Island residents are just getting over digging out of yet another blast of snow and now frigid temperatures are here.
The temperature outside dipped into the teens overnight, leaving places like the Red Cross to offer up some tips. Nassau Red Cross spokesman Sam Killie says drivers should bring blankets and a charged cell phone when heading out.
The cold temps are also causing concern for the homeless. Just last week, News 12 Long Island reported that a woman from Rocky Point was found dead in the snow. She was homeless and sleeping outside. The director of homeless services in Nassau County says the organization will find a bed for anyone in need.
