In The Region:

UPDATE: The Cleveland Zoo is now also closed Tuesday.

Severe cold is once again closing many courts, county offices and even the Akron Zoo.

In Cuyahoga County, all hearings and trials in common pleas, juvenile, domestic relations, probate and appeals courts have been called off Tuesday.  And any filings due by Tuesday can now be filed by Wednesday. Akron Municipal Court -- which covers Akron, Fairlawn, Lakemore Richfield and surrounding townships  -- also will be closed.

The Akron Zoo also announced it is closing, and will reopen at 11 a.m. Wednesday. Cleveland is open -- for now. 

The American Red Cross of Northeast Ohio has opened 14 warming centers across the region today and is considering keeping some open through the night.

Christine Moran of the Red Cross says the centers provide safe environments in extreme weather.

“We open up warming centers so that people have somewhere to go to get out of extreme temperatures and we provide snacks," Moran says. "Some of our locations have games. It’s just a place to come and warm up in case you’re out in the extreme cold.”

The centers will be open daily through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Moran says the Red Cross has no plans yet to open overnight shelters, but will reconsider if there are power outages.
