With wind chill readings making temperatures feel like they are in the single digits and teens across the state on Friday, warming centers have been activated.
Hartford was among the first to open its locations.
"Due to today's cold temperatures and strong wind gusts, I’m urging residents to try to stay indoors and take precautions against the cold,” said Mayor Bronin. “Along with the Hartford Public Library branches, a number of warming centers will be open to provide daytime warmth and shelter. However, if you or anyone you know is in need of overnight arrangements, we urge you to please call 2-1-1 for assistance."
In addition, the Hartford Public Library is available for residents and visitors.
