TORONTO, Jan. 20 /CNW/ - The City of Toronto has cancelled the Extreme
Cold Weather Alert that was called yesterday.
The City's Hostel Services issues an Extreme Cold Weather Alert based on
information from Environment Canada that predicts Toronto will experience a
temperature of -15 degrees Celsius or lower without wind chill; a wind chill
worthy of a warning to curb outdoor activity; and/or extreme weather, such as
a blizzard or ice storm. The Director of Hostel Services can also call an
alert or put on extra services at her discretion when there are concerns about
the safety of homeless people.
