The American Red Cross will graciously open a temporary warming center from 8 p.m. Tuesday until 8 a.m. Wednesday.

This temporary warming center is open to the public and should be utilized by citizens who need a warm place to remain overnight rather than being in a dwelling with no heat or outdoors. This is not a shelter. The facility will only be open until 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The warming center has been set up in the Recreation Center of the South Main Baptist Church located at 200 Colquitt Street in between Main Street and US 59 in midtown.

Anyone in need of a shelter would like to call to request transportation to this warming center or another shelter facility, call 311 for transportation assistance.
