More than 800 schools in Metro Detroit have closed due to the record-breaking cold.
The University of Michigan canceled all classes and reduced operations on Wednesday and Thursday. It is the third time the university has closed for weather in four decades.
On Tuesday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a state of emergency ahead of the cold weather now being described as "once-in-a-generation."
Experts are advising everyone stay indoors if possible, and if you must go outside, to cover up with layers to avoid frostbite.
