City, Partners to Provide Spaces to Stay Warm
SAVANNAH (Jan. 16, 2024) – With wind chill advisories predicted to drop below 20 degrees, the City of Savannah and partner agencies are making warming facilities available for residents without adequate shelter.
The Tomkins Regional Center, 2333 Ogeechee Road, will open Tuesday night, Jan. 16, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for residents in need of a last resort overnight shelter. Pets, under the owner’s control, are welcome. Bare essentials will be provided.
The Savannah Police Department and Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless (CSAH) can assist in transporting residents to shelter locations if required.
Inclement weather with a wind chill predicted to be in the teens is forecasted for this weekend. If the forecast remains in place, the City will open a warming shelter again. Notifications will be made public later this week.
Residents are encouraged to minimize travel, stay indoors during the worst part of the extreme cold, check on the elderly and bring pets inside. The City has notified horse drawn carriage tour companies of the impending cold tonight and this weekend in accordance with the City ordinance. Tourism Compliance Officers will monitor horses.
Media will not be allowed in the warming centers.
