Extreme Weather Shelter to Open Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday Nights in SoHum as Snow Level Drops
With snow predicted in the mountains tonight which could be dropping to as low as 1000 feet on Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service, the Extreme Weather Shelter in Southern Humboldt will be opening. And snow could stick at even lower elevations Monday morning.
On Sunday and Monday, from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., the shelter will be open at the Mateel Community Center in Redway. On Tuesday, it will be open at the First Baptist Church also in Redway. “Dinner and breakfast will be provided,” said Yashi, one of the program directors.
For those people that are in Garberville, he said, there will be free bus service on Monday and Tuesday into Redway and back. “Tell the bus driver that they are going to the winter shelter and they’ll get a free ride,” Yashi said.
Temperature, he said, could drop down to 31 degrees on Monday and down into the mid-twenties Tuesday night and Wednesday. Thursday will be back up to the high thirties, Yashi said.
There are no accommodations for dogs at the Shelter this time.
