COLD TEMPERATURES OVER THE LAST WEEK HAVE ALLOWED SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS OF ICE AND SNOW TO REMAIN ON BUILDINGS AND OTHER EXPOSED TALL STRUCTURES. TEMPERATURES OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS HAVE RAPIDLY WARMED ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC. THIS INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF ICE TO FALL FROM BUILDINGS AND OTHER STRUCTURES… CAUSING A HAZARD TO PEOPLE AND VEHICLES THAT MAY BE IN THE PATH OF THE FALLING ICE.

IN ADDITION…MANY AREA PONDS AND LAKES BECAME ICE COVERED…BUT THE COLD WEATHER WAS NOT OF SUFFICIENT LENGTH TO MAKE MANY OF THESE WATERWAYS TO BECOME SAFE TO WALK OR SKATE ON. RAPIDLY WARMING TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE THIN ICE EVEN THINNER. FOR SAFETY…STAY OFF ANY ICE COVERED BODIES OF WATER.
