Severe weather shelters activated Monday night due to cold weather

Due to anticipated freezing weather conditions, all four Kitsap County severe weather shelters will be activated Monday.

Hours of operation will be from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m. except at the Village Green location in Kingston, which will be open until 6:30 a.m. Guests seeking shelter will not be able to check-in after 9 p.m. If no guests have checked into a shelter location by 9 p.m., that location will close for the evening.

The locations are:

  • Gateway Fellowship, West Wing Building -18901 8th Ave NE, Poulsbo, WA
  • Port Orchard United Methodist Church – 725 Kitsap St, Port Orchard, WA
  • Silverdale United Methodist Church – 9982 Silverdale Way, Silverdale, WA
  • Village Green Community Center – 26159 Dulay Rd NE, Kingston, WA

Additionally, the Salvation Army in Bremerton operates as an independent winter shelter and will be open every night through March 31. The severe weather shelters serve all people in Kitsap County who require safe overnight refuge when hazardous weather conditions are expected, according to a press release. Further activations will be weather dependent.
