It may still be fall but this week it sure will feel like winter, with temperatures below freezing. That is why the Town of Hempstead and Nassau County are taking additional steps to protect its residents by opening warming centers.

In addition to the 15 warming centers in the Town of Hempstead there will also be nine others open throughout Nassau.

Thursday’ expected temperatures combined with wind chill could be very dangerous for the elderly and young people.
