DETROIT (WJBK) -- It's cold. So cold that the water on the Detroit River has a sheen of steam hovering above it.

As temperatures reach lows we haven't seen in nearly two years, it's important to remember those who have no place to escape the bitter weather.

Two women braved the sub-zero wind chills to get in a workout at the Livonia Parks and Recreation center (15100 Hubbard), one of the places offering Livonia residents a chance to warm up from the bitter cold. For more information on services available,call 734-466-2900.

The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
