Illinois governor issues warning ahead of dangerous polar vortex

Illinois governor issues warning ahead of dangerous polar vortexThe governor of Illinois on Monday issued an emergency preparedness plan ahead of a “historic” polar vortex of cold air and wind descending on much of the U.S., warning residents that temperatures were likely to plunge well below zero. Governor J.B. Pritzker said wind chill could drive temperatures to -55 degrees Fahrenheit in northern Illinois on Tuesday evening, capable of causing frostbite in a matter of minutes. “This is a potentially historic winter storm that will bring extreme cold to our state and all Illinoisans must prepare,” Pritzker said in a written statement released by his office.”Our administration is putting into place an Emergency Preparedness Plan with key state agencies as well as warning residents about these life-threatening conditions.” The so-called polar vortex weather system was expected to send frigid winds that circulate around the North Pole across much of the United States from the Dakotas through New England, National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Hurley said.
