Advice

Individuals in affected areas are advised to monitor local weather forecasts, prepare for lingering transportation disruptions, and confirm flight and train reservations.

If experiencing breathing difficulties, seek medical attention, particularly if new symptoms appear (e.g. cough, sore throat, irritated eyes).
