6:03 am
break in their bills this year will be those who use heating oil because those costs are down. unfortunately that is the least popular option as most people use natural gas and electricity. a few things you can do of course is to call your company and ask if there are any things you can do to keep your bill at bay. they will offer a lot of options. it's just something to keep an eye on. if it's already this cold right now and it is still technically autumn as you said, it's only going to get worse. hopefully we'll get a break sooner rather than later. again, if you head outside this morning, be sure to bundle up. no joke. in new carrollton, i'm "dynasty." back to you. >> our frigid temperatures triggered a hypothermia alert this morning for the district. >> that means shelters are required to take in anyone who needs help. in addition, catholic charities is opening up temporary shelters, too, and adding an extra 300 beds. extra staff will be on hand as well to drive homeless people to the shelters. staff will also be handing out plan cets, gloves and -- blankets, gloves and jackets.
