    Commuters make their way across the Chicago River during a sub-zero trek to their offices in the Loop on January 6, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.

    When Mother Nature takes the temperature to dangerous levels, it's important to find a safe place to stay warm.

    Public spaces like museums and libraries can offer a respite from the cold, as well as something to do, but designated warming centers also provide shelter.

    To find a warming center near you, call the Illinois Department of Human Services hotline at 800-843-6154 or visit www.keepwarm.illinois.gov.
