Hudson Valley bundles up

YONKERS - After a few days of normal January temperatures the Hudson Valley is back in the deep freeze and unfortunately it's here to stay for the next few days.

With temperatures in the mid-teens and wind chill factors making it feel like it is below zero, health officials are advising people in the Hudson Valley to stay indoors if possible.

News 12's Lisa LaRocca was in White Plains today and says people seem to are heeding the warnings of medical experts when it comes to frostbite and the dangers of exposed skin. Everyone appears to be covered in many layers of clothing.

LaRocca says it is important not to forget about the pets. She says not leave them outside for long and warns they can slip just as easily as humans on ice.
