Winter Vortex Record Low Temperatures
Temperatures reached an all time low this week in the Ames area. An official reading of 30 below zero was recorded shortly after midnight of January 30, 2019. As the local clocks were frozen in time on the night of the vortex, many homes were damaged by the extreme temperatures.
The result of the recent snow fall and record low temperatures is ice forming and working its way into places water naturally could not get into. As temperatures start to rise again the melting ice can lead to mold.
