With temperatures expected to once again to be in the mid-teens overnight, finding yourself outside tonight with nowhere to go, could be a dangerous situation. If you know of someone who may find themselves left out in the cold, here’s information from the Ulster County Executive that’s important to know.
If you or someone you know is homeless, or you find yourself in a desperate situation tonight, don't take a chance by staying out in the frigid temperatures, head to Ulster County's Warming Center, hosted by the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church.
According to Ulster County Executive Mike Hein, the center will be open tonight from 7 pm to 7 am tomorrow morning.
