Worst Snowstorm in Mundelein History?
When you have a storm damage emergency in your home or business in Mundelein, our local teams in Mundelein and North Wauconda are Here to Help. ® According to the National Weather Service, one of the worst snowstorms to hit the Chicagoland area occurred on February 2, 2011, on Groundhog Day, the day when the people of Illinois experienced about six weeks' worth of winter weather in three days, from January 31st to February 2nd.
If you get caught outside in a blizzard, the City of Chicago’s website recommends the following courses of action:
Avoiding overexertion, such as shoveling heavy snow, pushing a car, or walking in deep snow. The strain from the cold and the hard labor of snow shoveling could cause a heart attack at any age which is a major cause of death in the winter. Don’t ignore chest pain or tightness in your chest.
If you become stranded outdoors:
- Seek shelter to stay dry
- Cover all exposed parts of the body
- If no shelter is nearby, prepare a lean-to, windbreak, or snow cave for protection from the wind. Build a fire for heat and to attract attention.
- Do not eat snow as it will lower your body temperature. Melt it first.
- Watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia
