NEWBERRY — The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office warns residents about unusually cold temperatures to fall this week, specifically Tuesday and Wednesday.
“On Tuesday lows will be in the mid-teens and the high will reach just above freezing. Wednesday will see a warming trend with lows in the higher teens and highs being in the 40s,” according to the sheriff’s office.
Any residual water on surfaces will freeze. Care should be taken to insure pets are well insulated from the cold as well as vulnerable plants. Uninsulated pipes should be covered or allow water to drip to prevent freezing and bursting.
Only use approved heating devices indoors and insure those are away from flammable materials.
