GENESEE COUNTY (WJRT) -

(01/23/14) - If you think it's cold now, with the winds increasing on Friday, it's going to feel even colder.

Thursday night, ABC12 talked to Dr. Dominic Borgialli. He's an emergency room doctor at Hurley Medical Center.

The hospital is busy this time of the year with people coming in with cold-related illnesses.

When it gets this cold, the wind can make your body lose heat more quickly and that could lead to hypothermia and frostbite.

Dr. Dominic Borgialli says people should bundle up and also get inside if they feel pain in their hands, feet or other parts of their body.

"One of the mistakes that people will do, is try to go through the pain of the cold and go inside and then back outside with the pain in their hands or feet has never been resolved," Borgialli said.
