WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- In light of the frigid temperatures, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino emphasized the availability of warm places to stay overnight on Friday for anyone seeking shelter from the cold.

Families seeking shelter or anyone who knows of a family in need, should contact emergency services at (914) 995-2099 immediately. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
