For the safety of the people of Western New York and rink staff, The Ice at Canalside will remain closed today. The Erie County Health Department said personal health and safety can be in jeopardy during extreme winter cold. When temperatures drop below normal and as wind speed increases, heat can leave your body quickly and can lead to serious health problems. The most common problems are hypothermia and frostbite.
Canalside staffers want to do their part in keeping the public safe and encourage all Buffalonians to only go out if absolutely necessary. Check www.CanalsideBuffalo.com for the latest information.
