There's chilly, then there's cold, and then there's killer cold. We're definitely past the first two.

Luckily, most of us have someplace to go to keep warm in the middle of what may turn out to be a historic cold spell. However, there are plenty of folks suffering through this frigid weather without adequate heat.

That's why there have been "warming centers" in place around the stateline since November of last year, running through April of this year.

If you, or someone you know is having really tough time with this weather, here's where to go for some warmth and relief (list courtesy of 23 WIFR News):
