HOUSTON - The freezing temperatures have arrived in the Houston area and some residents will be looking into places to stay warm.
Texas Winter Storm: What the Houston area can expect
A winter storm is producing snow, ice and subfreezing temperatures across a nearly 3,000-mile swath of the U.S. – from New England down to Texas. Additionally, a winter weather watch was issued by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) through Sunday.
For this reason, the National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) is partnering with other churches to open up warming centers. They will be offering beds, free meals for overnights, water, hot showers, COVID-19 rapid tests, and temp checks required at check-in.
The church is expecting to hold at least 200 people. The doors will open at 7 p.m. and remain open through Saturday but could expand depending on weather conditions.
See below for a list of warming centers in the greater Houston area that will continue to be updated as more places open:
