DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Winter storms have hit the Miami Valley, bringing dangerously cold temperatures with them.
Snow is no longer accumulating, but temperatures have dropped into the negatives, with wind chill making it feel as low as -35 degrees at times.
Temperatures like this are dangerous, and several places in the Dayton and Springfield area have opened their doors to those looking for somewhere warm to be.
The city of Springfield is working with Nehemiah Foundation Faith Community Crisis Response Team and Sheltered Inc. to keep people safe during the storm. The Salvation Army shelter is located at 15 S. Plum Street and will open at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22. It will stay open through at least Saturday morning.
“We always aim for coordinated entry into even better conditions for each client, but we will remain open throughout the entire holiday weekend if necessary,” said Amy Willmann, executive director of the Nehemiah Foundation.
