In the next two days, abnormal frosts await residents of Moscow, the capital's main office of the Ministry of Emergency Situations reported.
"According to forecasters of Roshydromet, on December 10 and 11, abnormally cold weather will continue in Moscow with an average daily air temperature of 7-10 °C below the climatic norm," the report says.
The department recommended that citizens move while on the street, wear a hat, take shelter from the wind, and also use the nearest premises for heating.
"When you come home from the cold, don't drink hot tea right away and don't take a hot shower or bath. With a sudden change in temperature, there can be a significant load on the cardiovascular system. The body must adapt to room temperature within 20-30 minutes," the Ministry of Emergency Situations explained.
At the same time, the capital's motorists were urged to strictly comply with traffic rules, recalling that all components and assemblies of the vehicle must be in good working order. Drivers were also advised to have a charged phone, a supply of fuel and warm clothes.

In turn, survival expert Eduard Khalilov said that in order not to freeze during a long walk or work in the fresh air, you can use various heating pads.
"In tourist stores, you can find gasoline, salt, chemical options. With their help, you can warm the whole body and even your legs, because there are chemical heating pads in the form of insoles that will work for up to 12 hours. You just need to remember that they should not be applied directly to the skin, this can cause a burn, but only through some clothing like thermal underwear," he said in an interview with Radio Sputnik.
At the same time, the expert noted that in case of abnormal frosts, it is also important to choose the right clothes.
"If we take a city person, then modern high-tech clothing is important. These are light down jackets, warm boots, gloves or mittens. You also need to eat well, calorie-dense in order to have energy. If a person is hungry or dehydrated, they will start to freeze. And don't forget to move. At the time of physical activity, blood circulates better through the veins and carries heat," Khalilov added.
