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.

"No one should be out in the cold at a time like this, especially with temperatures dropping below zero," Astorino said. "If you or anyone you know needs shelter, our warming centers are available. We especially want to make sure families and children have a warm place to stay."
