Warming centers open up as frigid temps are felt across Long Island

Warming centers are opening and heating up across Long Island as dangerously cold conditions impact the region this weekend.
Both Nassau and Suffolk counties have taken steps to help keep residents safe and warm, as well as preparations for Sunday's wintry weather.
In the Town of Huntington, tons of salt and sand are ready to go to treat the roads. Frigid temperatures, along with the possibility of snow, rain and ice this holiday weekend could make the roads treacherous.
"We have all the roads being pretreated if the storm comes in, it could change. It could be snow, but again, it could be heavy rains mixed with snow, which lead to heavy pushing and that can break a lot of equipment," says Huntington Superintendent of Highways Andre Sorrentino.
For people who need to get in out of the cold, there are several places they can go in Nassau to warm up.
The county has warming centers at Cantiague park Administration Office in Hicksville, the Wantagh Administration Building and the Mitchel Field Administration Building in Uniondale. All three of these locations will be open 24/7.
And in the Town of Oyster Bay, there are warming centers at the Ice Skating Center in Bethpage and the Hicksville Athletic Center. They're open this Saturday from at 8 a.m. to midnight.
