AUSTIN, Texas — A cold front has hit Austin, causing the city's cold weather shelters to activate for the night on Tuesday, Dec. 10.
The cold weather shelters are activated when the weather is below 32 degrees, or below 35 degrees when it is raining or when there are high winds. The weather for Dec. 10 is predicted to hit a low of 33 degrees.
The City of Austin recently tweeted that single adult men and women in need of shelter should report to the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless (ARCH) by 5:15 p.m. Families in need of shelter should report to the Salvation Army located at 501 E. Eighth St. by 7 p.m.
The shelter normally operates on a lottery process, which determines who will be offered shelter for the night.
People who do not have a tuberculosis test on file with Front Steps should plan to attend the lottery, as all tuberculosis policies remain in full effect at the ARCH.
For more information, you can call the shelter's hotline at 512-305-4233.
