Some people in North Texas are going on multiple days without heat and power. Others now have a flooded home because frozen pipes have burst.
That’s why cities and many churches are offering a warm place for people to get a break.
The city of Dallas’ main warming center is at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center located at 650 S Griffin Street. For more information, visit http://www.dallascitynews.net/city-dallas-opens-emergency-warming-center.
Additional warming stations include select YMCA branches – the Moorland Family YMCA at Oak Cliff, Park South YMCA, Waxahachie Family YMCA, White Rock Family YMCA, J.E.R. Chilton Family YMCA at Rockwall, Richardson Family YMCA, Cross Timbers Family YMCA and the Semones Family YMCA.
They offer hot coffee, charging stations, WiFi access, water and hot showers. Read more: https://www.ymcadallas.org/blog/ymca-winter-warming-centers.
Many Dallas rec centers and several churches are also offering people a warm place to stay. The Dallas Police Department shared a list and encouraged anyone who needs a ride to email CouncilOffice@dallascityhall.com.
Fort Worth’s main emergency shelter is now open at the Fort Worth Convention Center located at 1201 Houston Street.
The city also has warming stations available at various community centers including the Worth Heights Community Center, Handley Meadowbrook Community Center, Diamond Hill Community Center, North Tri-Ethnic Community Center, Summerglen Library and Southwest Community Center.
Fort Worth has made arrangements to allow residents using these warming stations to bring their pets, which will be placed in temporary crates while at the station.
