Freezing Fog Predicted Tonight, Extreme Weather Shelter Open
Tonight, volunteers are opening the Extreme Weather Shelter at the Healy Senior Center in Redway for those in need of a warm place to stay. The National Weather Service is predicting freezing fog with temperatures down to 27 degrees tonight.
The Shelter will be open from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. Peg Anderson who helps operate the shelter said that this makes the fifth night the shelter will open this week. Luckily, she said, “The volunteers are being amazing. That is a lot to ask to be there five days [this week] of doing sheltering for us.”
Dinner and breakfast will be provided as usual. Remember there is no weekend bus service and no accommodations for dogs at the Shelter this time.
Anderson asked for donations if possible. “We could use warm jackets and hats,” she explained. “We need men’s jackets, hats, and gloves…We don’t need women’s clothing.”
