Extreme cold continues its icy grip on Alberto.

The cold wind temperature will give the impression that in some parts of the landscape is between -40 ° C and -50 ° C, causing a severe cold warning from environmental Canada.

"Some parts of Alberta should be expected to experience exceptionally cold conditions in the night and in the morning over the weekend and even on Wednesday," says a warning.

"Extreme cold threatens everything."

Albertan is advised to look at the symptoms associated with cold, including:

  • Short breath.
  • Chest pain.
  • Muscle pain and weakness.
  • Fatigue and change in the color of your toes and fingers.

The warning adds that if it's too cold to stay out, it's too cold for pets to stay outdoors.
