Record cold hit Central Illinois this morning, with plunging temperatures and dangerous wind chills.
Today's record breaking cold weather is affecting the delivery of mail. Officials with the Taylorville Post Office tell Regional Radio News that there will NOT be any delivery on city or rural routes today.
The Pana Post Office will not be delivering any city and rural mail today.
And, the Shelbyville Post Office says that there will NOT be any city or rural delivery of mail today, but packages that require delivery will be delivered.
Needless to say, if you have to be outside, bundle up and make sure all exposed skin is completely covered. Central Illinois will remain in the deep freeze until mid-day on Thursday.
