Even though the wind has subsided, the temperatures in the area are still frigid. With this round of arctic air, some churches are opening their doors to serve as warming shelters.
St. Patrick Center and The Bridge Centenary United Methodist Church are open today and Christ Church Cathedral will open as an overnight shelter tonight. City warming shelters are also open. For locations and hours, visit our website, ktrs.com.
Meanwhile, the cold weather has also prompted Illinois to open warming centers across that state, including on West St. Louis Ave. in East Alton and on Madison Ave. in Granite City.
Two shelters are open in East St. Louis. One is on North 9th St. and the other is on James Thompson Blvd. The warming centers are open from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
