A warming center at Reed Arena will open at 4 p.m. today for individuals and families in the community impacted by power outages.

It is important to point out that minimal amenities are available at this time. This means that there will be no cots, food or beverages. The facility is being warmed to 70 degrees to assist those who wish to seek shelter from the cold.

The facility is expected to remain open through  noon Thursday, Feb. 18. Please park in either Lot 102 or 100 and enter at the main entrance to Reed Arena (Look for “Reed Arena” sign on building side facing Kyle Field).

Anyone considering relocation to the shelter should do so before 9 p.m. tonight as continued freezing rain is expected.

Families and individuals wishing to shelter are strongly encouraged to bring their own blankets, food and beverages (no alcohol), as well as face coverings for wearing indoors. The Red Cross will have limited blankets available. Physical distancing measures remain in effect due to COVID-19. No pets are allowed in Reed Arena (please make plans for your pets to stay safe while you are not at home). Bathrooms are functional, and seating is available.

Please use extreme caution if relocating. If you need transportation, please call Brazos Transit at 979-571-0701 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
