Extreme Weather Sheltering: Individuals in need of shelter should use city’s “front door” shelter access points, which are listed at the website. If those facilities reach capacity, they will refer people to St. Francis Center, 2323 Curtis St., for transportation between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. each night to the Best Western and the Coliseum.
