Frostbite can occur on exposed body parts during extreme cold. Uncovered faces, cheeks and extremities such as fingers and toes are most susceptible. When temperatures are around 0 degrees Fahrenheit and the wind is blowing at 15 miles per hour, frostbite can occur in approximately 30 minutes. The colder the temperatures or the stronger the wind, the faster frostbite will occur. Dress properly for the cold. If you feel pain or numbness, find warm shelter. If symptoms persist seek medical attention.
