DETROIT — Detroit police say a 70-year-old man froze to death Wednesday morning.

Police say the man was found frozen outside of a residence near the Lodge Freeway.

It is currently not known who found the man or what the circumstances of his death were.

Officials warned of almost instant frostbite as temperatures in the region plunged below zero Wednesday. Some state offices are closed and postal workers won't deliver mail in six entire states -- and parts of four others. Thousands of flights have been canceled along with dozens of train services -- most of them in Chicago.
