With the temperatures so low more than 20 states preparing for a winter blast, the Red Cross has some tips to keep you, and your family safe. Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help prevent losing body heat. After the storm, be extremely careful if you have to shovel snow. It is physically strenuous work, so take breaks and stay hydrated. Seek medical attention immediately if you have symptoms of hypothermia, including confusion, dizziness, exhaustion and severe shivering. Watch for symptoms of frostbite, including numbness, flushed gray, white, blue or yellow skin discoloration, numbness, or waxy feeling skin.
