Establecen centros para los necesitados




Frio
Una intensa ola de frío ha entrado al área de Kansas City.
De acuerdo con el periódico Kansas City Star, una masa de aire ártico ha entrado a la parte superior del medio oeste, congelando tuberías de agua y llevando a las autoridades gubernamentales a pedirle a los residentes a que cuiden a sus vecinos.

Las agencias de noticias locales reportaron que cientos de residentes llamaron a compañías de plomería debido a problemas con el frío y las tuberías de agua.
El frío intenso puede causar problemas de salud, incluyendo hipotermia. El frío puede ser particularmente peligroso para los indigentes, quienes están a riesgo de morir congelados. De acuerdo con un estudio del Departamento de Vivienda y Desarrollo Urbano, hay más de 200,000 personas sin techo en Estados Unidos.

Local news agencies reported that hundreds of residents called plumbing companies because of problems related to the cold and their pipes.

The bitter cold can cause health problems, including hypothermia. The cold can be particularly hazardous for the homeless, who risk freezing to death. According to a study from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, there are more than 200,000 homeless people in America.
