Cold temps trigger opening of emergency shelters

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 by Tai Moses

As temperatures dropped into the 30s overnight, the city opened cold weather shelters across Austin. The shelters are activated when temps fall below 35 degrees with rain or 32 degrees when the skies are dry. According to a post on the city’s Twitter feed, single adult men and women who need a warm roof over their heads can go to the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless, while homeless families may shelter at the Salvation Army. For more information, call the 24/7 shelter hotline at (512) 305-4233.
