Officials Warn of Cold Evening Conditions

As visitors and area residents head out to tonight's balls, galas and events, they should keep warm clothing in mind, according to District authorities.

D.C. Fire Department spokesman Alan Etter said about a dozen people were being evaluated at about 7 p.m. at 6th and D streets NW for complaints of being cold and were examined for potential hypothermia symptoms. The injuries are believed to be minor, like many of the people who were treated along the Mall today.
